It didn’t take long after the formal launch of the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 for the Korean to release one of the things that developers and tinkerers would like to get their hands on the most first – the source code of the tablet.
Even though it hasn’t even been released in South Korea, the source code for two variants of the bigger brother of Galaxy Note can now be downloaded from Samsung’s Open Source Developer website, with both zip files coming in at 175MB in size. The source codes released are for the SHW-M480K and SHW-M480S Galaxy Note 10.1 models.

The locked bootloader is a potential problem that owners of Galaxy S3 on the other three major carriers in the country don’t have to face. While it doesn’t necessarily close the flashing custom ROMs door for Verizon customers, it certainly makes it harder.

If you’ve been counting the long long days to the debut of AT&T’s HTC One X, the torment is now over. The phone, which was unveiled in February at MWC, is finally available for purchase in AT&T stores across the country. Slightly different from the international version, the AT&T variant of the HTC One X, often dubbed the HTC One XL, sports a 1.4GHz Snapdragon S4 dual-core processor, instead of the quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3 found on its cosmopolitan cousin.
The HTC One X is offered for $199.99 with a two-year voice and data plan, while the non-contract offer goes for a surprisingly reasonable $549.99. As is usually the case, Amazon Wireless is [...]
Rev your engines, Android developers, the Ice Cream Sandwich source code for the international version of Samsung Galaxy S2 is upon us. Yes, we’re talking about the same ICS that was just rolled out by the company to an exclusive few a couple of days back.
You can get the ICS kernel source code for your Galaxy S2 phone by going to Samsung’s Open Source Release Center website. There will be four zip files for you to download, once you do a search on the model number of the Samsung Galaxy S2; in this case, it’s the GT-I9100.
