PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless The company revealed Thursday that it will delay publication of the Android 3.0 (Honeycomb) source code for the foreseeable future - possibly for months. It's not clear when (or if) the source code will be made available. The decision puts Android on a path towards a "draconian future" of its own, in which it is controlled by a single vendor - Google. The Ars link linked above is a pretty inflammatory editorial, so see also: Businessweek, GigaOM, The Register.

Wow, that Ars Technica article seems kind of biased and overdramatic. This is not the beginning of the end, it's just a one time delay in a source code release. As long as Google adheres to all the relevant open source licenses, I don't see the big deal. The source code of Android 3 will come, only after support for phones is finished.
