G1 users to get Android 2.0 by end of this month?
Just before the year ended, we passed along a story that the G1 was going to get an upgrade to Android 2.0 or 2.1. Users of the handset just couldn't wait because the upgrade would take the inaugural Android phone and turn it into an up to date device-at least software wise. According to some tweets on the subject and discussion on a internal T-Mobile forum by the moderator, the upgrade will be OTA and should happen by the end of this month. Until we get the official word from the carrier, we should file this under "M" for maybe or "P" for perhaps. While the G1 obviously doesn't have the hardware capabilities of a Motorola DROID, upgrading to Android 2.0 is really going to make the G1 a different phone. You G1 owners out there really looking forward to this update?

Sadly I'm not really looking forward to it. Cus all my complaints about android are either hardware slowness, screen inaccuracy, or lack of multitouch in the web browser. So pretty much my option is to upgrade to a newer handset. I've given up on my G1 and only use my Pixi now.

I have my Nexus One now but I'd still think I'm going to upgrade my Aging G1 on my own.

Everywhere I read said that 2.x was too big to fit on the G1's system partition unless they seriously stripped down the OS and left no room for anything else... Guess T-Mo found a way.
