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.

You are confusing quality and price. High price does not automatically imply high quality.

Just take a look at Motorola XOOM: high price, low quality. If google wants android to be associated with high quality, why the hell did they release XOOM so early?

disclaimer: I run honeycomb on a high quality/low cost tablet thanks to XDA.
