T-Mobile G1 getting officially an update… Android 2.0?

Android 2.0 on G1

The T-Mobile G1 is the first Google phone in the market and the first Android phone on T-Mobile’s line up. There are many complains about this phone because the G1 wont get another mayor updates or it wont be recommended to upgrade to Android 2.0 because hardware  issues. We have saw also the T-Mobile g1 running the Motoblur. Apparently this is over. AndroidSPIN has reported that the G1 is getting the Android 2.0 or 2.0.1 really soon.

  • G1 system partition: 69120K
  • T-Mobile Android 1.5: 68780k
  • T-Mobile Android 1.6: 68800k

The G1 has about 70 MB available for the operating system to be installed. Android 1.5 used 99.5% of that space and Android 1.6 was no different.

  • Emulator Android 1.6: 61216k
  • T-Mobile Android 1.6: 68800k
  • Emulator Android 2.0: 70964k
  • T-Mobile Android 2.0: ???

Android 2.0 running in the emulator already goes over the G1 system partition limit. The T-Mobile version will likely be 7-8 MB larger. For those of you who are curious, the myTouch 3G (and most other Android phones) feature a 90 MB system partition and will have no problem with Android 2.0.

Android Developers: T-Mobile G1 Updates stop at Android 1.5 (Updated)

By: Shawn August 17th, 2009

According to Android Software engineer Dave Sparks, T-Mobile G1 users wont be seeing any more updates beyond the current Android Cupcake 1.5 software. According to sources, the HTC G1 device does not have enough internal flash memory to support any of the new software updates, such as Dounut (Android 2.0). The T-Mobile G1 was the first Android device released in the world, and until now continues to be the single most sold Android device on the market. With the HTC Magic (G2, or MyTouch 3G) having recently broken the 1 million sold mark, Android hardware is drastically improving and expanding, along with significant upgrades in software, not to mention some incredible additions to the Android Applications Market.

Or is this all just a scam to get T-Mobile customers to move on to the myTouch 3G and other Android devices….let the conspiracy theories begin!

T-Mobile G1 users, let us know how you feel in the comments! We wouldn’t be all that thrilled if we were you.

Update Via EngadgetMobile: We’ve received a statement directly from T-Mobile on the matter, saying “We plan to continue working with Google to introduce future software updates to the T-Mobile G1. Reports to the contrary are inaccurate.” It’s unclear whether those are just going to be security and stability updates to 1.5 or whether we’ll see wholesale new versions like Donut and beyond, but for the sake of G1 owners everywhere, we’re hoping it’s the latter.

T-Mobile G1 has a much better QWERTY keyboard than the Palm Pre

By: T-Marco June 2nd, 2009

New KeyboardAccording with Cnet, Jason Hiner’s take on the Palm Pre, mentions 5 reasons why the G1 keyboard is better than the Plam Pre. Reason number 4, carriers want an iPhone competitor, is debatable because I think we are going to see many more Android devices that do just that. Since there is nothing solid as far as announcements go I will leave that one alone.
