Submission + - Android Honeycomb will not be open sourced (geek.com) 1

An anonymous reader writes: In an effort to understand the landscape for developers, Andy Rubin was asked if, since Ice Cream Sandwich would be open, will Android 3.0 and/or 3.1 be granted the same courtesy. Rubin answered definitively in the negative. Honeycomb on its own would not be open, because its phone functionality is very broken. Ice Cream Sandwich will take all of the Honeycomb functionality and open source it alongside code that is much more universally friendly.
