I have always wondered why people have thought that Android was open. Just because Google says so doesn't mean it is. This article on Ars Technica shows how much control Google has on the best parts of Android.

This is a good thing in my opinion. Google needs to be a bit more like Apple, at least on the Android side of things. They are a for profit company and others are profiting more from Android than Google.

Still, Google should stop using "Android is open" as a marketing term. It's another walled garden.

Looks like open has become a catchword.
