Sony releases Android M AOSP Developer Preview images for Xperia smartphones and tablets
posted by Luis D. / Jun 22, 2015, 9:26 AM
The list of eligible devices includes the Xperia Z3, Z3 Compact, Z2, Z1, Z Ultra, Z, ZL, E3, M2, T2 Ultra, T3, L, and S smartphones along with the Z3 Tablet Compact, Z2 Tablet, and Tablet Z tablets. They are listed as part of Sony's Open Device program, which basically means they are fair game for everyone looking into developing on them. Alas, the new Z3+/Z4/Z4v aren't part of the line-up for now.
Sony warns that "AOSP software is not certified or intended for regular use", and that "the modem and the camera are not implemented", which means you shouldn't rely on Android M as your daily driver for the time being. But if you feel like you know what you're doing, you're welcome to visit the source link and get going! Interim, check out some of our Android M coverage from this year's Google I/O if you feel like you're missing anything.

nope, it is not new at all. Sony has been releasing AOSP for devs for years AFAIK. And no, it is not custom. AOSP as i know is "the original" version of android, and yes it is developed by Google. And the widely popular Google Android that we know is just a version of it, much like android vesion of nokia (microsoft), amazon, etc. Or if you like to compare Android Google to AOSP is like Ubuntu to Debian. Please, correct me if i'm wrong.
