According to Jean-Baptiste Queru, a Google software engineer on the Android program, the T-Mobile G1 may not have enough flash RAM to support future versions of Android.  Queru commented on the subject via Twitter: “As much as I’m hoping that it’ll be possible to somehow continue updating the G1, I can’t promise anything. We knew that internal flash space was going to be very tight on the G1 and we kept the system partition tight on purpose.” The statements were made in response to this post from Android and Me that talks of the limited storage space in the T-Mobile…

As we get closer to the end of the year, we hope that we shall see Google’s claims of up to 18 hand-sets running Android this year come true. Various sources are reporting T-Mobile USA and Huawei look to be budding up to collective offer the 8220. According to Electricpig, the 8220 has just received its “Wi-Fi Interoperability Certificate – and on that certificate it’s referred to as the T-Mobile Pulse.” Things are pretty sketchy at this point, but we hope to see a 3.5’’ touchscreen display which will be perfect for viewing the pictures taken on the 3MP camera….

China Mobile unveiled the Dell Mini 3i at an event showing off its new application platform.  The Dell Mini 3i sports a 360 x 640 pixel capacitive touchscreen display and a 3 megapixel camera, but features only GSM/EDGE connectivity and has no WiFi at all. Chinese site 163.com was on hand to snap a few photos of the device in the flesh.  Gallery after the jump.

It appears that some poor quality photos of the new Dell mini3i for China have surfaced.  The photo at the right comes from CNBeta.com (via Cloned in China), which also has a photo of the back of the device that shows the Dell logo.  The quality of that pic, however, is even worse…  The story appears to claim that the phone will go on sale on August 31. BoyGeniusReport has also posted what it claims are a few live (and extremely blurry) photos of the mini3i.  On top of the photos, however, the site has also posted a spec list…

Digitimes is reporting that Peter Chou, the CEO of HTC, has announced that HTC has sold over 1 million HTC Magic devices.  Although this milestone may seem less noteworthy, seeing as the Magic was released on many carriers around the world, the figure demonstrates that the Android fan base is shaping up quite nicely.

Mobile Crunch has discovered a Chinese site that appears to have an official announcement of the release of Dell’s mini3i Android-powered smartphone. The article (in Chinese) indicates that the Dell phone will be released through China Mobile under the OPhone category.  This is not to be mistaken with the Lenovo OPhone that we had previously reported on.  Apparently China Mobile intends on using the term “OPhone” as an umbrella word for all Android devices that it will release.  All China Mobile “OPhones” will be required to support the Chinese homegrown 3G TD-SCDMA standard, which has shown relatively slow adoption.

Cellpassion has just discovered some XML code on an internal HTC page that indicates that an HTC phone called the Fiesta is coming to AT&T.  The T5252/Fiesta is thought to run the Android OS, even though the XML file doesn’t indicate that.  The HTC Fiesta is listed to have a “numeric keypad” and a QVGA display, which puts the phone at around a mid-range phone. While the phone specs aren’t the most impressive, more Android phones are better than none right?

EngadgetMobile has found an HTC support page that lists a Sprint version of the HTC Hero, which all but confirms what we’ve been hearing in the rumor mills for some time: the HTC Hero is going to be offered by Sprint in the U.S. For those of you that were looking to get the device on AT&T, we feel your pain.  We already knew that T-Mobile USA had no plans to offer the Hero. I’m going to be at a breakfast meeting with Sprint CEO Dan Hesse tomorrow morning, so hopefully I can get some more information about Sprint’s Android…
