I think FireFox did a smart move there, I mean if FireFox os is as open as they claim, that means it's more open than andriod & ios ofcourse, and I think this will probably get really famous.

lol.. how can you be MORE open then fully available source.. that is android!!

This is why Android is not open :

a). It is fully open-source as core Google Apps included are closed-source. See - http://code.google.com/p/open-android-alliance/
b). It can be open-source but not fully open as Google places various restrictions on it's usage. See - http://www.wired.com/business/2010/10/is-android-open/
c). Google has vested commercial interest in tracking and showing advt. to make revenue from Android, so they cant be fully open as in the term coined "open-source".
