Android 1.5 update begins rollout T-Mobile G1 owners have begun receiving the Android 1.5 firmware update today, despite the carrier's warning earlier this week that the rollout could be delayed until June.
Coming with 1.5 is the addition of an 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.
