You can refuse to distribute GPLed software to anyone you want.

The fact that the Nexus One phone has GPLed software in it doesn't obligate Google to give me one.

The purpose of the GPL is to ensure that 1) When you do distribute the program to someone in binary format, you also make available the source and 2) You don't restrict their rights to modification and distribution with additional requirements.
