While everyone is talking about Android 4.0 code, what is worth 
mentioning is that Google has also released source code of Honeycomb as 
well.

Despite Google's repeated clarification that holding back Honeycomb code 
was not intended to make it close source but to stop OEMs from starting 
to put it on their devices. Honeycomb was a work-around to put Android 
on the tablets while Google works on Android 4.0.

But now Google has released the source code for honeycomb as well.

Queru writes in his post, "This release includes the full history of the 
Android source code tree, which naturally includes all the source code 
for the Honeycomb releases. However, since Honeycomb was a little 
incomplete, we want everyone to focus on Ice Cream Sandwich. So, we 
haven't created any tags that correspond to the Honeycomb releases (even 
though the changes are present in the history.)
