Um, Honeycomb tablets actually have been released. You can buy them now, and I know developers who have been working on tablet apps who have been frustrated by the lack of source access.
This is not FUD. The most modern released version of Android, which is marketed as open source, does not actually have source code available in the open. While I share your frustration about the Microsoft patents and kernel headers/bionic kerfluffle, there is a real serious concern here that Google is basically only releasing sources at their convenience, and not actually doing anything to make Android a viable free platform.
