After this move by Google, probably OEMs start thinking to look for alternative instead of solely depending on Google.

It makes sense for Google to want to control the way Honeycomb will be exploited. There ain't no such thing as a free lunch!

If once they have decided to put Android as open source, then why dont they want to put it open space now? Is it that Android is "THE" operating system for smartphones and other upcoming gadgets and keep the technology with them as far as they can..

I agree with Luis. Google must have some reasons (waiting for Apple iPad 2 to iron out and getting feedback from the market) why it is not releasing Honeycomb. Business value is usually about "speed to market" yet open source means that everyone can cook in the kitchen. I am also cognisant of selinz's comments...UI design should consider dual functionality so that multiple devices can successfully run tablet-friendly programs. I'm sure the two borrow from each other. However, how is tablet design different from tablet PC? The lines are going to get blurred and at some point, interchangeability for speed to market will be needed.

Google is Android-neutral. They are not playing any favor game.

I don't think Google is helping any tablet makers by actually delaying the release of Honeycomb. This could actually give HP and Blackberry to release their tablets with altogether different operating system and can eat the pie of delayed Android tablets.

And, of course, there is the likelihood that iPad2 provided enough advancement that Honeycomb needs to be refined to attempt to catch up. The first one to market (especially when it is Apple) gets to set the target for the next guy who should be trying to do something better, whether technologically, pricing, or what.

I can only believe that this is a tactical strategy by Google to delay "showing their cards". I would fully suspect they have a couple of 'new features' not found in other smartphones. By delaying the release far enough into their competitors product cycle, it has the potential to put them ahead of their competitors for up to 18 months while the rest play catch up.

I'm still waiting for Honeycomb on a Tablet at a price that doesn't make iPad2 look like a bargain

Corporate open source brings its own set of issues. With more conventional open source, the target audience tends to understand what they are getting into. They tend to be the sort that can evaluate an update, decide if it's necessary and take the steps to implement it. They also tend to be the types that can deal with update schedules all over the map, from frequent to sporadic. In standard open source, the quality is only as good as the community supporting it. In general, the results are quite good, but still rarely polished enough for the masses. And therein lies the problem for corporate open source like Android. Google obviously wants to deliver a product that is world-class in functionality and in useability. They want it to be secure and reliable and worthy of the Google name. Once released into open source, a certain amount of the control that is needed to keep it a mass-appeal product can be lost. Either they're looking for a way to open source it and still keep enough of that control or they're deciding whether or not to even open source it.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
