Google It was inevitable, of course, and rightfully so: Google is having its big I/O conference, so we have to talk about the lack of Honeycomb's source code. While not violating any licenses, the lack of source code doesn't sit well with many - including myself - so it only makes sense people are asking Google about it. Andy Rubin confirmed we're never going to see Honeycomb's sources as a standalone release. He also explained what 'open' means for Android.

I'm not entirely inside the honeycomb saga, so can someone clarify this to me?

manufacturers of honeycomb devices may provide the source, no? Is there any legal barrier for that code to be used on other devices by other companies?
