Ma'am, can't wait to hear Gemini's take on this one:

Apple: "You screw with our phones, and you're breaking the law!"

Motorola and Google: "You're messing with our tablet? Come on in, we'll accommodate you anyway."

"What's so open about Android?" This is.

I would say that a friendly policy like this trumps ANY special something an Apple product supposedly has, and is easily worth paying a premium price for.

This will be fine as long as the release the source to the public before the upgrade is available.
