Sony takes control of Xperia S AOSP development as Google shifts focus back to own hardware


Less than three months after Jean-Baptiste Queru from Google announced the experimental addition of the Xperia S to the Android Open Source Project, Google has decided not to pursue further development. As it stands now, the AOSP build for the Sony Xperia S is able to boot up with support for 3G data and calling, microSD storage, Wi-Fi, multiple sensors and media playback.

While Google’s official involvement in the project has been scaled back in an effort to focus resources on its own hardware, Sony has transplanted the code to its GitHub account, hoping other members of the development community will chip in to keep the project alive.

Check out the video below to get a feel for what Google and Sony have been up to over the past few months.
