Project Gus: The Sad State of Open Source in Android Tablets

http://projectgus.com/2010/07/open-s...droid-tablets/

Quote:
With the exception of Barnes & Noble’s Nook e-reader, a device that isn’t even really a tablet, I couldn’t find a single EDIT: I found one tablet manufacturer who was complying with the minimum of their legal open source requirements under GNU GPL. Let alone supporting community development.
Go Archos!

Quote:
Often, community Android releases are better than the original manufacturer’s. Slatedroid & ECOTOX have been releasing customised Android versions for the Eken M001 tablet which are both faster and support more features than the OEM release. Having kernel source available can only serve to make these releases better. For the Nook e-reader, community software releases allow you to view more ebook formats on your Nook, and even add totally unexpected features like Pandora Internet Radio.
I don't think Android has really geared up for Tablets yet-this Fall we should see a lot more players...will be interested to see his list 6 months from now.
