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.

>Google have already said the Honeycomb 3.0 build that is already deployed will not have it's source released.

Did Google release the source for 3.0 to Motorola to deploy the Xoom? If yes, then they comply with GPL.
