One V

HTC has released the kernel source for the Asian and European version of the One V, (see Alex's great review here) meeting their obligations under the GPL and teasing potential Android hackers all with one stroke. As it is every time we see source code get released, this won't mean much for the average Joe or Jane, but the good things that come from it certainly may. The kernel is the window to the hardware, and lots of cool things can happen when the right people tinker with it. 

We can't wait for these phones, and this code, to get in the right hands. You can grab the code here.

This is actually good news for people that own lower end or older phones. We can have a stable version of ics and sense 4.0 on phones like the HTC Desire.
