Samsung Galaxy S III source code posted online
The Samsung Galaxy S III has only been out for a couple of days in some 28 countries, but Samsung has already posted its full source code at its open-source repository.

This shows not only that Samsung is following the Android guidelines, but that it cares for developers, who we are sure will be quick to come up with their custom ROMs for the quad-core Galaxy S III.

So far, the source code is the one for the international version of the SGS III, known as model GT-I9300, but not for the upcoming US-specific models. Hit the source links to get the zipped files containing the source code and stay tuned for the first custom ROMs.

iOS isn't open source, so how they could steal it ? Think before talking!

Rip design, distribute it, and there.
How smart.. Now it become Samsung's.

Google is also one of them.

So, make a decision, you are talking about design or about code because this article talks about source code.

How productive and coherent comment...new trolls raisin'™

Just for fun, let's play:

1) Android development started in 2003, bought by Google in 2005 - first iPhone was released in 2007.
2) First computer was a Xerox Alto, not an Apple PC
3) Tablet idea was first seen in Star Trek, in year 1966: often enough you see officers signin off on electronic clipboards with some kind of stylus.
4) Yes, S-Voice is a reskinned Siri with more available languages but vocal control was already existing by ages. Again, Star Trek's LCARS inspired Apple - that's why Google's future vocal research will be codenamed Majel. Both Siri and S-Voice are potentially useless as you anyway need to trigger it by touching the phone. Google Project Glass suggests that soon we will activate Vocal control just by talking.
5) Samsung is adapting an already Open Source code to its hardware, custom ROM developers need Samsung's version for hardware drivers.

Learn how to control your jealousy, man. So much hatred will lead you to a nervous breakdown someday.

i am very happy to see this. i love samsung for it. there are so many developers who work on galaxy s2 and thats why when i rooted my gs2(which was very easy due to the reason that sammy is so developer friendly) i had hundreds of kernels and custom roms to choose from and so many people develop for gs2 so theres a lot of people i can talk to and take advice from and stuff. i am looking for the gs3 rom to be adapted by someone for the gs2 so i can flash it. and quite a few people on xda are working on it right now
