RC33 (Android v1.1) Update Starts Arriving

Today marks the day that T-Mobile starts rolling out the latest round of updates to the G1.  While everyone is anxiously anticipating Cupcake to arrive, we’re merely getting a few crumbs for now.  Looking through some of the bullet points on the official T-Mobile forum, some of them are still very welcome.

Developers, and frequent Android Market visitors will love the fact that users can market comments as spam.  No more blatant website advertising or derogatory remarks!  Another update to the Android OS is the new Google Maps 3.0, which of course has the new Google Latitude feature.

Aside from the bug fixes and improvements, here’s a quick list of what to expect over the coming days:

  • Support “Check For Upgrades”
  • Voice Search
  • Ability to save pictures recieved as MMS
  • Ability to report offensive comments in the Market as SPAM
  • Google Latitude / Maps 3.0

We’ll end it with a few screenshots courtesy of the forum.  Looks like the Market will alert you to updates to apps you’ve already downloaded.

According to T-Mobile, the updates should show up between February 5th and 15th.  Have you already been upgraded?  If so, what do you think?
