C’est Dan Morill, de chez Google, qui précise les choses suivantes :

the best we can say is that the source code will be available in 2008

The article that Stone Mirror cited says things like « late 2008 » and « the
source itself won’t be released until […] the first Android phones go on
sale », but I don’t know where they got that information. Neither of those
statements is official or accurate according to our current information.
(It’s probably worth noting that those are not direct quotes attributed to
Dave Burke, so some amount of interpretation has occurred, and sometimes
mistakes happen.)

En clair, l’information selon laquelle Google attend qu’un premier terminal soit sur le marché pour publier le code source d’Android est fausse. La seule chose que l’on sait est que le code source sera publié en 2008.
