Google Playtime is over in Android Land. Over the last couple of months Google has reached out to the major carriers and device makers backing its mobile operating system with a message: There will be no more willy-nilly tweaks to the software. No more partnerships formed outside of Google's purview. From now on, companies hoping to receive early access to Google's most up-to-date software will need approval of their plans. And they will seek that approval from Andy Rubin, the head of Google's Android group.

Andoid is as open as H264.

I'm not going to get out my magnifying glass and compare every single detail. There's a clear pictured painted by Google here and a particular trend forming; it's clear where the future is going.

You want a good example of open, look no further than Webkit.
