Are you ready? The revolution has begun, and the floodgates are open. The G1
has been unofficially filtering into consumer's hands- and even retail locations- for the past week, but today it is officially available, assuming you live in one of the 95 cities with 3G coverage. Much more importantly however, Google has released the source code for the OS. The code is available at the newly announced Android Open Source Project's
website, and includes everything you need to build your own smartphone software. There may not be the fanboyism...er, fanfare associated with the iPhone's launch(es,) but we don't think it'll be long before Android's presence is felt across the mobile world, including current devices never intended to run the platform. Get developing!
