I have been notified of an internal memo within T-Mobile confirming that the CUPCAKE update will be sent to G1 phones by mid January 2009.
This “Over The Air” update by T-Mobile for G1 users should be received as soon as Sunday January 11th, 2009.
G1 owners will receive a pop up notification automatically from T-Mobile - Then you would simply approve the upgrade and it is done automatically.
The memo described what is in this G1 update and it closely mirrors what I listed here at Google And Blog of the Android CupCake features.
Just in time for those with a G1 in Washington DC on Tuesday January 20th, 2009 to video record the historic inauguration of Barak Obama as President of the United States.
*** Mark Murphy has echoed my concerns about this update in regards to video recording being included, as from what we understand there are still kinks to work out in the Android CupCake path especially for it to work on the G1, BUT it is what was listed as a feature in the upcoming update according to the internal T-Mobile memo leaked ***
