Open Handset Alliance (OHA)

Google and 33 other companies have announced an ambitious industry alliance that will maintain a completely open source mobile phone stack. The Open Handset Alliance (OHA) says phones based on its Linux-based “Android” stack will reach market in as soon as eight months.

It's about time - most devices on the market today are as closed as it can get.
Looks seem more important than open connectivity - the iphone is not on my x-mas list.
