Unlike Apple, who doesn’t discuss what upcoming features it plans to include in future iPhone firmware updates, HTC has been kind enough to spill out many necessary details. I’m talking about the so-called Cupcake update that’s said to be in the works, and will bring a lot of bug fixes as well as a few new features to the T-Mobile G1.
HTC even put together a video demonstrating the use of an on-screen keyboard for the T-Mobile G1, and now they’re saying that this Cupcake update will be made available for G1 users over the air. No exact date for the OTA push update has been given, but HTC has confirmed it, at least to Engadget.
It is said that HTC actually can’t make the OTA update happen on their own, as the ones pulling the strings are Google itself and carrier T-Mobile. However, HTC says it should only be a matter of time until the much awaited update is released. We’ll update you when that day comes.
