Google serves up Ice Cream Sandwich code

Galaxy Nexus source available now

Intelligent flash storage arrays

The Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich source code is out.

Google announced the release last night, noting that the code actually on offer is version 4.0.1 of the combined tablet and smartphone OS.

That's the release that will be pre-loaded onto the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, which is due to go on sale tomorrow.

Google coder Jean-Baptiste Queru said the download files includes build configuration data for compiling the code to run on the Nexus.

"Build configurations for other devices will come later," Queru promised.

He also noted that the code includes Android 3.x Honeycomb, previously only pre-loaded on tablets and not made available for download. It was an OS Queru described as "a little incomplete". For that reason, make sure you build for ICS, he said.

The Ice Cream Sarnie code can be downloaded here. ®
