T-Mobile has posted today that the 1.5 Android CupCake release has been delayed another week so users can expect it in early June rather than Late May.
The official announcement on the T-Mobile forum was:
We’d like to provide an update on the rollout of Android 1.5 for T-Mobile G1 customers.
We are working diligently to get Android 1.5 out as soon as possible, while aiming to ensure a consistent, positive experience for our customers.
We’re finalizing the build this week to ensure optimal functionality and smooth delivery.
Therefore, the rollout schedule has been reset by approximately a week, and we expect all G1 customers will have the update by early June.
Your device will notify you when the update is available. Thank you for your patience and understanding.”
Dan Morrill of Google Developer Relations also stated this week that CupCake is now a defunct name, since that milestone has passed (The next being Donut) as Android 1.5 is the actual name & version for the current Android platform release.
So where did the CupCake name originate?
Dan clarifies that,” Cupcake was the code-name for a development milestone, as well as the name for the source code branch corresponding to that milestone.
Our naming convention is currently tasty, delicious desserts, similar to how Ubuntu uses Hardy Heron, Gutsy Gibbon, and the like as their code names.
We didn’t think people would find this as amusing as they have, and it got picked up by the press more widely than we expected.”
So another week to find this all amusing as the Cupcake continues to cook in the US.
