Grab your Android code now!
Since Google’s Android was first revealed it has been known that it was going to be open source.

What does this mean for the iPhone? Not much. Apple won’t feel enough pressure to open up OS X mobile and honestly most people don’t care about open versus closed, they just want easy over kludgy. Although it probably isn’t too much to hope that Apple will see any programming niftiness in Android’s source and do a littlebit of imitation if parts of the code are clearly superior.
