News about Cupcake update to G1 (RC31)
Taken from Googleandblog.com:
FACT - There WILL be a G1 update shortly as it was INTENDED to be by mid-January so the next target is now by the end of January.
FACT - T-Mobile will not just provide Cupcake elements to the G2 and leave the G1 behind.
FACT - The next update will be called RC31 and include Cupcake elements.
FACT - The mass of calls lately for Cupcake is registering and causing T-Mobile to double their efforts in getting the update out.
FACT - NO ONE has received RC31 as of today.
FACT - When the update is released it will be done in stages “Over The Air” but it will be by region not when you purchased the G1.
FACT - The memo I was privy to is NOT distributed to Support personnel.
FACT - T-Mobile Specialists & Support are LAST to know when an update happens and are notified AFTER it is released as was the case with RC29 & RC30.
FACT - T-Mobile does have a battery improvement program in motion
FACT - T-Mobile’s plan for battery improvement will be one of OR a combination of efficiencies in an OTA update and an extended life battery replacement.

I have heard that it will give AIM more features like the HelloAIM app.
Is it definetly gonna come by february? And what is included?
The cupcake update has to be later then Jan. I just recieveds an up date 1/20/09 and its missing the cupcake feature. I hope its soon, I'm getting blackberry withdraws.
It's funny that you say you're having blackberry withdrawls because I kind of feel the same way. The only things I really like better on the G1 is the web browsing and the seemless integration of all the google stuff (calendar, email, contacts, etc) and the navigation using the touch screen. Otherwise i like the blackberry keyboard feel better (although the g1 keyboard is easier to use) and the quality of apps on the blackberry better (i SERIOUSLY miss my turnbyturn gps!)

Well, thanks for the info. I guess Android's blessing and curse is that with an open source code, applications can be developed, and the system will continually improve. Unfortunately, it sort of feels like the g1 was released as a "beta" application, with a lot of holes to be filled by said third-party programmers. "O.K., here it is... now you guys make it work!" If T-mobile leaves all the G1 purchasers behind, and releases patches only as part of the G2, I will really feel jooked. I love Jookie! Please don't do it, guys. O.K., guys?
Does anyone have problems with their gmail syncing up? Even when I have full service range, the gmail doesn't sync new messages ... in fact, I'll be sitting at my computer in my gmail account looking at new messages that have been there for 10 minutes and my phone still hasn't retrieved them. Not sure if this is a setting issue that is easily fixed or if other people have this problem as well ...
... I'm really looking forward to the update. Battery life is horrible. Facebook app is never working and a touchscreen keyboard really would make things a little more efficient ...
A good phone overall but there are some serious fixes that would help!
