Google Is Android still open now that Google has postponed the source code release of Honeycomb, version 3.0 of the mobile operating system?

Here's a short primer.

I am guessing they make GPL licensed parts (like the Kernel) available in one way or another, meanwhile they keep their own additions closed.
