T-Mobile G1 possibly unable to support Android Donut (1.6) and Eclair (2.0)

by: Michael OrylAugust 18, 2009

Android is sad

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 [...]

Google’s Rubin on Android future: Donut, Eclair, and Flan

by: Michael OrylJuly 13, 2009

The Wall Street Journal reported on Google’s Andy Rubin’s discussion of the future of the Android OS at a media event in San Francisco last week. Rubin mentioned the code names for the next few versions of Android. Donut, which we were well aware of, will be followed by Eclair and….wait for it….Flan.

Flan? Really?
