Samsung Releases Fascinate Source Code into the Wild

It’s becoming increasingly common for a hardware manufacturer to release the source code to their handsets.  HTC does it all the time, most recently with their Droid Incredible and EVO 4G.  Samsung has done exactly that with their new Fascinate handset from Verizon.  Putting this code out there for everyone makes it possible for crafty developers to put together some excellent ROMS.  You know, for the modding community.  Download the Fascinate source code at http://opensource.samsung.com/.  Just do a quick search for SCH-i500 and you’re on your way.
