T-Mobile G1 possibly unable to support Android Donut (1.6) and Eclair (2.0)
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 G1.
Update: I changed the title of this post since so many people seem to be unable to read. The question mark was removed from the end of the title, and “possibly” was inserted near the start.
