G1 to get tasty Cupcake update next month?
Who wants a cupcake? If you own the G1, you should be saying, "I do, I do!" The guys at Pocket Lint spoke to a T-Mobile spokesman who told them that the firmware upgrade known as "cupcake" should be offered sometime in April. This cupcake is more than just empty calories. It will add that long-awaited virtual QWERTY keyboard to the G1 as well as add video and audio recording, Stereo Bluetooth, and the ability to save MMS attatchments. The upgrade is expected to be made available at about the same time that the Android powered HTC Magic-which will sport the cupcake improvements out of the box-is expected to be released although T-Mobile could not confirm that they were trying to coordinate the release of their firmware fix with the launch of HTC's newest Android handset. As we reported earlier this month, the Magic is expected to be launched next month in Europe through Vodafone. At any rate, if you own the G1, this is one cupcake that you have been waiting for so long that you will probably gobble it down when it arrives.
