If you're still using the old T-Mobile G1, but thinking of upgrading to an Android 2.1 device. Well hold your horses, as Cyanogen has cooked up an unofficial Android 2.1 ROM for the first Android handset. The video below serves as proof:
T-Mobile will be releasing a tiny firmware update for its first Andriod handset, the G1 on March 15th. The new firmware offers improved "call performance" without "any additional feature enhancements."
AndroidSPIN has spread a rumor claiming that the first Android device, the T-Mobile G1, will receive an official Android 2.smth OTA update in the near future. We, however, suggest you to wait for the official confirmation and not get too excited.
Just to let you know, T-Mobile has issued a minor OTA firmware update (Android 1.5 build CRC1) for its G1 handset. According to the official description it includes "permissions fixes and other bug fixes". That's all there is to it.
With the upcoming release of the MyTouch 3G (Magic), T-Mobile has decided to drop the price for its popular G1. The smartphone is available now for $149.99 with a 2-year contract. So if you need an Android 1.5 based handset with a QWERTY keyboard, this sounds like a good deal.
Yes it's for real this time: T-Mobile has finally started distributing Android 1.5 over-the-air to American G1 users. Now anyone can download and install the update without wasting too much brain power. You'll get third-party widget support, virtual keyboard, email and messaging improvements, revised UI and much more, so what are you waiting for?
Here's a great deal for anyone who wanted to get T-Mobile G1 at a bargain. The handset is now available at Amazon for just $97.99 on a 2-year contract! That's by 302 bucks lower than the original price!
Don't waste time and order one now, while they're still in stock.
