As part of the Android Open Source Project, Google has just released the source code for Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich). The Galaxy Nexus, the first device Android 4.0 will be released on, is landing in the coming weeks on Verizon so it makes sense for Google to release the source code now. The release will help manufacturers and developers get their devices/apps ready for the upcoming launch. Hopefully we’ll be seeing devices adopt Android 4.0 as fast as possible.

This release includes all of the Android tree, so the Honeycomb code is also included. In Google’s post, they call Honeycomb “a little incomplete” and ask developers to focus on Android 4.0.
