PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless The company revealed Thursday that it will delay publication of the Android 3.0 (Honeycomb) source code for the foreseeable future - possibly for months. It's not clear when (or if) the source code will be made available. The decision puts Android on a path towards a "draconian future" of its own, in which it is controlled by a single vendor - Google. The Ars link linked above is a pretty inflammatory editorial, so see also: Businessweek, GigaOM, The Register.

Seems like a conclusion that could wait till after we have a better idea of why they decided to do this?

Maybe they are tired of watching others cripple their product? Maybe it is related to the Sun/Oracle lawsuit or the Microsoft lawsuit? There could be a bunch of things we have thus fair failed to speculate on.
