Not really.

Think of Apple's walled garden being exactly that. A great, big, fuckoff wall. Some things (movies, music) you can take outside the wall with some fucking around, but your apps you can move to another manufacturers device.

Android is more like the standard wire fence topped with barbed wire. You can easily move between paddocks (manufacturers) with minimal of fuss. Music and movies tend not to be DRM'd either, and can be moved about without proprietary software.
