Google shows off 'Cupcake' Android 1.5 update Google has launched a video demo of the new Cupcake Android 1.5 firmware update this week, following the announcement that the update will be available for all 1 million US users starting this week.
The most anticipated addition is the the on-screen keyboard. Users will be able to enter text while the phone is in portrait mode instead of having to rotate to landscape mode and open the keyboard.

The new update will also add more Home Screen widgets including a widgets for the user's calendar, a music player, and a picture frame.

The addition of video recording, as well as the addition of video playback support for MPEG-4 and 3GP, is a welcome addition for many whose biggest complaint is the lack of video recording using the built-in camera.
