Android "Donut" update to focus on Social Networking

There are still no big details about the next Android update, termed as “Donut” and other future releases “Eclair and Flan.” The previous update was called “Cupcake.”
However according to an article on the WSJ, Google VP of engineering, Andy Rubin says the social element will be a big focus in the upcoming update.

The word is that the social push will pull caller ID images from social network sites such as Facebook and use profile pictures which of course the BlackBerry and Palm Pre already does.

Yet another significant extra could be the inclusion of carrier billing for mobile applications bought in the Android Market; as yet the only payment option is Google Checkout but using this way a user can purchase all in a single swoop.
