Google Is Android still open now that Google has postponed the source code release of Honeycomb, version 3.0 of the mobile operating system? I've been reading a whole boatload of articles and blog posts on the web claiming Android is no longer open, but it seems like very few people seem to actually understand what 'open' really means when it comes to the GPL and the Apache license. Here's a short primer.

Andoid is not open.

Android is open.(using the command in rubin's status still produce an Android image ver 2.3.3) Honeycomb has not been opensourced. Google's apps and Market were never open.

Can we stop at that?
