Android Open Source Project (AOSP) is showing some movement in the android-3.10 branch of its source code repository. While nothing it definite for now, it could be signs that Android will soon be moving towards a more recent Linux kernel version and away from the year-old 3.4 kernel currently in use.
Key Lime Pie here soon from Google. There's no question they're hard at work on the next major release, possibly set for later this year, and today we're seeing some interesting tidbits on the Kernel side.

Nokia posted a job listing seeking a Linux expert, and we all became excited that the cell phone giant would be crossing over to the Android side.

Humble Bundle veteran knows that the games announced at the beginning of any given promotion are only the preliminary round. Like every Humble Bundle before it, the same holds true for the Humble Bundle for Android 3, as four additional games have been tossed into the mix.

Humble Indie Bundle has arrived, and once again, its indie game goodness is being offered on Android. As with past bundles, the Humble Indie Bundle for Android 3 (which is a ridiculous name) lets buyers name their own price on a collection of indie games. A customizable portion of your purchase price goes to charity, so not only do you get a handful of excellent indie games on the cheap, but you also get to feel good about giving some money where it's truly needed.
