Just one day ahead of the launch of the world's first Android phone, Google (NSDQ: GOOG) has opened up the mobile phone platform to anyone who wants it.

You can now download the entire Android Open Source Project for free.
Wow. You want Android? Now you can go get it. Not the SDK, mind you, but the complete operating system. The news came in a blog post today. It is so well written, I am going to let Dave Bort do the talking:



    Today is a big day for Android, the Open Handset Alliance, and the open-source community. All of the work that we've poured into the mobile platform is now officially available, for free, as the Android Open Source Project.

    You'll be hearing a lot about Android devices. We've all put a lot of effort into the first Android device, and I'm really happy with the way it turned out. But one device is just the beginning.

    Android is not a single piece of hardware; it's a complete, end-to-end software platform that can be adapted to work on any number of hardware configurations. Everything is there, from the bootloader all the way up to the applications. And with an Android device already on the market, it has proven that it has what it takes to truly compete in the mobile arena.
