T-Mo Delays Android 1 5 Up

T-Mobile on Monday said it will delay upgrading G1 phones to Android 1.5 by about a week. The carrier doesn't explain the setback other than to say it's only finalizing its build this week but, as a consequence, now expects all G1s to have the upgrade by the first week of June rather than the original end of May target. Moving the upgrade is needed to "ensure optimal functionality and smooth delivery," the company says.

Android 1.5 adds an on-screen QWERTY keyboard, stereo audio over Bluetooth, video capture and offline playback as well as multiple extra features absent from the platform since the G1 and Android were launched this past fall. Owners will have the option of updating their phones over the air and should be told when the update is available.
