Awesome!

I'm actually curious, what other manufacturers release source code and how promptly do they do it?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe all manufacturers are bound by the GPL license of the Linux-derived kernel to publish the source code every time they release a new kernel to the public (i.e., their users). In practice, this means they will publish a new kernel source code with each new phone and each new version of Android (2.1, 2.2, 2.3, etc.). Also, if there are any critical updates that they have to apply to the kernel, they will publish that too, but such situations aren't that common. Most of the big manufacturers will publish their source code within a week of releasing their latest Android upgrade or phone.
