... Android consists of a kernel based on the Linux kernel 2. 6 and Linux Kernel 3. x (Android 4. 0 onwards), with middleware, libraries and APIs written in C and application software running on an application framework which includes Java-compatible libraries based on Apache Harmony.

... In early 2011, Google chose to temporarily withhold the Android source code to the tablet-only Honeycomb release, the reason, according to Andy Rubin in an official Android blog post, was because Honeycomb was rushed for production of the Motorola Xoom, and they did not want third parties creating a really bad user experience by attempting to put onto smartphones a version of Android intended for tablets.

...However, as community-developed software has grown more popular, and following a statement by the Librarian of Congress in the United States that permits the jailbreaking of mobile devices, manufacturers and carriers have softened their position regarding third party development, with some, including HTC, Motorola, Samsung and Sony Ericsson, providing support and encouraging development.
