Google Releases Android Open Source, In Full

Google Releases Android Open Source [news.cnet.com], In Full
Less than a year after announcing Android, the open-source phone operating system intended to jump-start the mobile Internet, Google began sharing the project's underlying source code.

"Our plan is a launching point for a much more vibrant open-source community," said Rich Miner, vice president of Google's mobile platforms business. "For the past almost four years, this has been a large effort between Google and our partners. There have been a lot of people working on the code, but that's going to be multiplied by several orders of magnitude."

I note the following...
Google said it will offer a compatibility test suite to ensure various versions of Android remain compatible.

It's all well and good providing a compatibility test suite, but you have to be able to write the code first. What's needed is a software development suite, and since the mobile phone is hardly designed for writing software, it's going to have to run on a PC. When that's announced, I'll be interested.

I stand corrected, and thanks for the link.
