Cupcake Not Being Released for Public Consumption?

We’ve got some disheartening news for those of you hoping to wake up to an Android Cupcake update later this month.  Apparently, the release is not going to happen in a mass public rollout, if at all.  That is of course if the following pans out to be true.

The kind folks over at AndroidTapp sent this over today.

According to the Android team, “Cupcake,” which is the code name for an Android software build, is still a work in progress that is considered to be a development branch and not for general availability.

We will update you as T-Mobile G1 software updates are made available to T-Mobile customers. –

Stay with us here.  The text you see above is from T-Mobile Product Development and PR Dept.  It was Google approved and sent to another T-Mobile Forums Admin named Will.  Will then shared that info with AndroidTapp.

Is this the final word?  Probably not.  What we’re hoping is that this is just company speak for people to pass along.  As in, “here’s what you need to say if people ask” kinda stuff.   For all we know, it could be a series of updates rolled out instead of one big one.  It is a development branch after all and not strictly a release.
