Google Android will remain open source

With no plans for change in strategy Andy Rubin confirms that Android is and will be open source.

Android is and will remain free and open source, Google’s vice president Andy Rubin reiterated, putting an end to rumours of it becoming a paid platform.

Google delayed the release of a new source code for developers, setting off rumours that the company is changing its strategy for Android and that it will release a paid version of Honeycomb.

“We continue to be an open source platform and will continue releasing source code when it is ready. As I write this the Android team is still hard at work to bring all the new Honeycomb features to phones. As soon as this work is completed, we’ll publish the code. This temporary delay does not represent a change in strategy. We remain firmly committed to providing Android as an open source platform across many device types,” said Andy Rubin.
