Android 2.3 source code goes up for developers

As promised with the launch of the Nexus S, Google's Open Source Project on Friday posted the source code for Android 2.3. The move both lets developers modify the base OS but also gives the go-ahead to companies making devices without the Google blessing needed for Android Market or certain official apps. All of the underlying features, including the built-in VoIP support, are the same as for more closed builds.

As with usual open-source projects, users can modify the code as much as they like or in some cases roll changes into the main release, although Google maintains full control. The download has been popular enough that Google has been asking developers to wait either until later today or later in the week.
