bonch writes “Google is tightening its control over Android in an attempt to standardize the platform. Licensees must agree to a ‘non-fragmentation clause’ that gives Google final approval over operating system changes, allegedly sparking complaints to the Justice Department. This follows Google’s recent decision to withhold the source to Honeycomb from non-privileged partners, a move that has drawn criticism from openness advocates. Google says that Honeycomb will be open sourced when it’s ready for other devices.”
