2) If code is proprietary, it's not open. Period. Google does not give everyone the same access (see the Skyhook lawsuit in which Google threatened to revoke features to Motorola.)
3) Check your facts. As an aside, they're probably conservative going by channel sales. The return rate on Android tablets is even higher. Regarding development, who cares if has more API's (redundant to OS features) or features alone? Nobody does, because they're all poorly implemented. Although that theoretically allows for a wider range of possibility, betting against OS features is a bad idea regardless. Things like 2D hardware acceleration or HTML5 performance matter far more, where Android is still stuck somewhere between Symbian and Blackberry.
