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.

However, what are those components underlying iOS that are not made available? Can you let me what they are?

Specifically, without touching the UI stuff, the ARM port of XNU. There is i386 and PPC, but no ARM.
