HTC releases kernel source for myTouch 4G Slide, Desire Gingerbread, and Raider 4G

1

HTC has (finally) released the GPL kernel source for the myTouch 4G Slide, and they have tossed in the Gingerbread update kernel source for the Desire, and the code for the Raider 4G (Korea) kernel.  It's a case of better late than never, and I know more than a few developers have been waiting for that Doubleshot kernel source code.  Let the CM7 games begin.

Most of us won't be in any rush to grab these, but developers have been waiting so they can work their magic with it.  Give them a few days then be ready to have a flash-fest.  If you're interested or a developer, grab them at the source link.

Android AOSP source code back online with a new home

4

In a post on the Android-building Google group, Dan Morrill announced that the AOSP tree (the "Master" and "Gingerbread" branches) are once again available online.  Because of problems with the kernel.org servers, the source has been MIA for a while, and in the downtime Google ramped up work for their own git hosting on Google's servers. 

For now, only the code is available.  Google is working hard to get the Gerrit code review site back in operation, then gitweb afterwards.  Dan also reiterates that the Ice Cream Sandwich source code will be available as soon as devices running it are delivered. 

With new servers comes new download and building instructions, which Dan outlines in his message at Google groups.  Be sure to have a look and get your new repository set-up -- you can find all the information at the source link.

Ice Cream Sandwich Easter Egg follows in Honeycomb's footsteps

5

For those who hadn't seen it yet: Yes, the Ice Cream Sandwich Easter Egg looks a little familiar. I'm still kind of partial to the Gingerbread Easter Egg myself.

Bluegrass Cellular gets the Samsung Admire

0

On Bluegrass Cellular? Want the Samsung Admire? It can now be yours for the low, low price of $49.99, if you're willing to go in for a two-year contract. But for our money, we'd do the $213, no-contract deal. And for that you get mid-level 3.5-inch device. Could certainly do worse.

Breaksclusive update: Still no official U.S. carrier for the Galaxy Nexus

56

Update: And the same person who initially said what we already all knew has now retracted that statement, saying what we all know is not officially known yet.

Original: We've suspected it for a while, we've even got a poll up asking what you think about the possibility. Now it seems we finally have confirmation that the shiny new Ice Cream Sandwich-powered Galaxy Nexus will, initially at least, only be offered on Verizon Wireless in the US.

On its official Facebook page, Samsung Mobile USA confirmed that Verizon "will be offering the Galaxy Nexus with the initial release." As for other carriers, Samsung says they "may support this device in the near future", meaning the door isn't being closed on other networks offering the new Nexus further down the line.

So while Verizon customers get bragging rights for now, there's still at least the possibility of the HSPA+ Galaxy Nexus gracing AT&T or T-Mobile at a later date. In any case, be sure to hit our Verizon Galaxy Nexus poll, before sounding off in the comments.

Tegra 3 gets an unofficial official promo video

8

So the world has been eagerly awaiting the arrival of NVIDIA's latest mobile offering, the quad-core Tegra 3 (Kal-El). While the actual goods are still not out in the wild, a short teaser video has been leaked to keep our interest in the meantime.  

While not revealing anything about any devices the Tegra 3 may be appearing in, the emphasis is as expected on performance. Although, a clear bezel on a tablet could be pretty cool.

Poll: How's a Verizon-exclusive Galaxy Nexus going to affect you?

89

So the Galaxy Nexus is coming to Verizon. Not like we didn't know that. And it might only be on Verizon in the U.S. for a little while. Not like we never said that wasn't a possibility. So the big question is this: Will a Verizon exclusive sway you to switch?

Would exclusivity on the Galaxy Nexus get you to switch to Verizon from your current carrier?
