Google Not Releasing Honeycomb Source Code ‘For the Foreseeable Future’

Ashlee Vance and Brad Stone, reporting for Businessweek:

Google says it will delay the distribution of its newest Android source code, dubbed Honeycomb, at least for the foreseeable future. The search giant says the software, which is tailored specifically for tablet computers that compete against Apple’s iPad, is not yet ready to be altered by outside programmers and customized for other devices, such as phones.

Guess we need a new definition of “open”.
