Java hasn't been open-source for a year yet, so I would argue that being open source had nothing to do with the popularity of Java.
As for the popularity of Android, in my opinion, the most important factors in it's popularity will be:
-the attractiveness of the devices it is deployed on (that iPhone sure is pretty)
-the hardware features of the devices it is deployed on (camera, keyboard, screen)
-the software applications (mobile web, gps, IM, etc.)
Very few people buying a phone consider the license the operating system uses. Maybe a few will be interested in platform X if it can be "jailbroken" so it can run on another wireless carrier, but that's probably the extent of the OS consideration.
