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 don't understand why everyone is getting upset here, clearly Honeycomb is BETA and not ready for massive public consumption. They have said from the get go that Ice Cream (Sandwich) will be the proper release of Android for all hardware. They rushed Honeycomb to market to combat the iPAD.

Agree with you, and the fact that they rushed it is the reason why Honeycomb hasn't done shit to combat the iPad so far. So, they probably could've just held on to it until it was ready, and it would've had the same net effect.
