Not to be overshadowed by Chrome OS, Android is still moving strong and has plenty of updates coming in the future. Google and T-Mobile held a media event on June 10th and Andy Rubin, vice president of engineering at Google, clarified Chrome OS is not a replacement for Android — duh. Future updates are still full steam ahead and will include more support for social networking along with different application payment methods besides Google Checkout. T-Mobile will allow payment to be directed to the user’s monthly bill, just like ringtones, wallpapers and themes (if anyone actually still buys that stuff through carrier mediums). The updates are also going to carry some sweet, cavity-inducing, diabetes-spiking names that all started with “Cupcake”. Ahead we’ll find “Donut”, “Eclair” and the slightly more exotic “Flan”. Will Google continue to class things up and issue “Tiramisu” and “Creme Brulee” down the road or will it take things down a notch with “Deep Fried Snickers Bar”? Of course no one really cares as long as those updates keep coming.
