    This isn't news. The standard police for main android is to release the code once, enough devices have it. Honeycone was nothing more than a stepping stone to get android to more devices. It was always going to be merged back into the main android releases, thus they had little reason to release it's code.

    The reason Honeycomb isn't opensource is they didn't want developers porting it to smartphones (for which it wasn't designed) "and create[ing] a bad user experience"; at least, that's what Google says.
