Google may have put a delay on releasing the Android Honeycomb source code to developers and manufacturers, but that hasn’t stopped Taiwanese company Asus publicly releasing it on it’s website.

The download named Version V188.8.131.52 isn’t a full Honeycomb coding so rival companies can’t download the code to install on their own tablets, but there is enough in the file to allow application developers to make new or adapt current applications to run on the new tablet optimized Honeycomb OS.
