Google Ars nails it: "The answer is that Google did announce what amounts to a fairly substantial Android update yesterday. They simply did it without adding to the update fragmentation problems that continue to plague the platform. By focusing on these changes and not the apparently-waiting-in-the-wings update to the core software, Google is showing us one of the ways in which it's trying to fix the update problem."

It's called the GPL. If Android had licensed Android as GPLv2 instead of Apache, we wouldn't be having these problems.

FYI: The copyright owner is not bound by any license. I can release all my code as GPL and then turn around and make a fully proprietary version.
