Samsung Releases Galaxy Tab's Open Source Code

  • By Developer.com Staff

Samsung's Galaxy Tab has been out for a couple of days and over the weekend someone in the Android Central forums discovered that Samsung has now released the open source code for the new Android device.

"Not all of the software on the Android 2.2-based Galaxy Tab is open source, of course, but," PCWorld's Katherine Noyes reported today, "the portions that are free are now available by clicking on 'Mobile' on Samsung's Open Source site. There, interested developers can find versions of the code for the Verizon, T-Mobile and Sprint releases of the Galaxy Tab available in the United States, as well as for Southeast Asia, Hong Kong/Taiwan, Brazil and beyond."

According to Samsung, "Android is open-source software, which means anyone can make the operating system better. That way, you benefit not only from the knowledge of Google developers but that of third party developers too."
