T-Mobile G1 to get Android 2.0?

T-Mobile G1 to get Android 2.0? Another rumor from the mill this week comes from AndroidSpin which is saying that T-Mobile G1 owners will soon receive an OTA (over the air) upgrade to firmware 2.0 (eclair).
Says the blog:

Ladies and Gentlemen, Boys and Girls. All of your Android holiday wishes are coming true.

It has been confirmed that T-Mobile is releasing an Eclair update for the T-Mobile G1. The update will be at least Android 2.0 but more likely Android 2.0.1 as both versions have already been prepared as OTA updates. An anonymous source of ours has confirmed that both the Android 2.0 and the Android 2.0.1 are in the hands of some very fortunate people. Nothing can be released just yet due to Non Disclosure reasons.


Rooted users have had 2.0 firmware for some time, but it is nice to see (if the rumor is true) that Google hasn't forgotten about Android early adopters.

At this point they should hold out just a bit for Android 2.1

this is good news for the average g1 consumer.

cyanogen already included donut features before the official donut release and he's done the same with eclair for the g1.
