Google The source code for Android 2.3 has been released. "Nexus S went on sale yesterday morning in the US, running Gingerbread. Just like I did for Froyo, I'm open-sourcing the matching Android platform source code, right after the first consumers get their hands on it. I'm going to start literally right now, and the process will take a few hours."

Wow. Ok. I wonder how many people who bought Android handsets other than Nexus had this little gem explained to them?


Interesting... in the past, whenever someone has made a similar criticism about the iOS, you and the rest of the Apple Defense Brigade have been quick to leap into the fray, apologists talking-points primed and ready. You know, the standard BS lines about how Apple's draconian restrictions are entirely "for our own good/for the User Experience(tm)/THINK OF THE CHILDREN".

So, by all means, please educate us as to why those arguments apply to Apple's restrictions, but not those imposed by Android device makers/carriers. Waiting...
