Yet another tip of the cap to my bud David over at TMoNews. Earlier this evening he was running unconfirmed reports that the much anticipated ‘Cupcake’ update for Android G1 users on T-Mobile would be coming early next week. Sure enough, after some sleuthing and after a post in the official T-Mobile forums, we can confirm Cupcake is indeed coming next week! The update will arrive randomly OTA to T-Mobile G1 customers. The official statement from the T-Mobile forums:
T-Mobile is delighted to announce the upcoming release of Android 1.5 with “Cupcake” coming soon to the T-Mobile G1! We plan to begin sending out the update starting the end of next week. As with previous software maintenance releases, the update will be randomly sent “over the air” to T-Mobile G1 customers. We expect everyone will have their update by the end of May.
Happy Cup-caking all. Should be an exciting time next week for G1 users!
