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.

Looking back at the history, you are correct. They released the source at the same time as the first public beta.

I couldn't find that while before I wrote my first post.

I thought there were other instances, but maybe not.
