Cupcake!

Very happy to hear that the "Cupcake" update is apparently being rolled out to G1 users at last. This will finally, really make my G1 the phone i wanted it to be.

Here's the quick list of features i'm looking forward to most:

  • Support for A2DP & AVRCP Bluetooth profiles (Stereo!)
  • Video recording (with better YouTube account integration)
  • Soft (onscreen) keyboard
  • Open Applications by Voice Command
  • "Significant" bug fixes in email checking, especially POP3 and IMAP
  • New menu option to list running processes
  • Updated WebKit browser core (way faster!)
  • Copy / paste is enabled in the browser
  • Find is enabled in the browser (for searching within a page)
  • Save attachments from MMS
I'm not sure, but it may also finally include support for more Home Screen widgets.

Another cool addition to the Cupcake build of Android that doesn't affect my G1: It now supports x86, which if i read it right, means i can load Android on my PC if i want to.

UPDATE: Maybe it's coming, maybe it isn't. T-Mobile USA won't confirm or deny it yet, but said an announcement is forthcoming.

UPDATE 2: Confirmed. Rollout starts the weekend of May 9th and will be complete by the end of May.
