Android is Now Open Source

Via my coworkers at the Android Developers Blog: Android is now open source.Android is the first free, open source, and fully customizable mobile platform. Android offers a full stack: an operating system, middleware, and key mobile applications. It also contains a rich set of APIs that allows third-party developers to develop great applications.Across my career, I am most proud of Android—as a platform, as a family of phones, and as a catalyst for change in an otherwise closed industry. But the most exciting part is what's next. Download the SDK and start hacking.


Download the Android SDK 1.0 release 1.Walt Mossberg: "The first real competitor to the iPhone ... the software is slick ... the G1 is a powerful, versatile device."But the sui generis: Android is open to developers, open to consumers, and open to handset manufacturers. Cannot wait to see what's next.
