UK G1 phone owners may now be finally getting caught up to the Android firmware update that was provided to US G1 phones nearly a month ago.
G1 owners in mainland Europe have been reporting in ModMyGphone on Monday that they are receiving the RC9 Android update which is similar to the RC33 update already provided to the US.
Early reports today indicate the RC9 update is finally being sent out in the UK bringing those phones up to Android firmware 1.1 which is needed to purchase paid applications in the Android Market.
Now that the US, Europe, and soon the UK will have access to the paid Android Market there should be some auto currency conversion based on where the user is so one doesn’t have to do a mental conversion of the price with all the different currencies currently shown.
So this would just leave the $400 And Dev 1 phones out of the paid Android Market since being blocked out shortly after the Holiday Update.
Anyone in the UK received the RC9 update yet?
