Future Android Update Status of T-Mobile G1 Unclear

Conflicting reports leave HTC G1 owners without a real answer with respect to the G1's ability to update to Android 2.0 and beyond. Android software engineer Dave Sparks recently said, "There will come a time in the near future when we won't be able to fit the latest release on the G1 internal flash." The G1 (which currently supports Android 1.5 -- a.k.a "Cupcake") has 256MB of internal storage, and cannot run the Android operating system, nor applications, from the microSD expansion slot. When asked to corroborate Sparks' statement, T-Mobile issued a statement of its own, which reads, "We plan to continue working with Google to introduce future software updates to the T-Mobile G1. Reports to the contrary are inaccurate." T-Mobile did not clarify or explicitly explain what "future software updates" means, nor did it commit to releasing any new versions of the Android platform for the G1.
