One of the T-Mobile G1's most appealing features is that its Android OS can be upgraded to take advantage of new updates issued by Google. Allegedly due to limited system memory, the G1 may have reached its ceiling with the latest "Cupcake" version of Android OS. According to an Android engineer's Twitter page:
"As much as I'm hoping that it'll be possible to somehow continue updating the G1, I can't promise anything."
When the G1 was first released, the OS was raw and not quite ready for prime time. A lot of customers bought the phone anyway, banking on Google to improve the OS with updates. This has to be tremendously disappointing news for G1 owners. Android is getting better and better all the time, but there's a chance that G1 owners will not be able to enjoy the "Donut" and "Eclair" updates for Android. Of course this Android engineer could be totally wrong and there might be a way for G1s to continue to receive updates.
Any G1 owners in the house? How do you feel about this news?
