Android community has resigned to the fact that the T-Mobile G1 (HTC Dream) will not receive any significant upgrades beyond "Cupcake," the Android software update from last April. The simple fact’s that there’s not enough memory on the G1 to support a much bigger OS, and even equipping the device with Cupcake was reportedly problematic. "We knew that internal flash space was going to be very tight on the G1 and we kept the system partition tight on purpose," Jean-Baptiste Queru said on Twitter. "As much as I'm hoping that it'll be possible to somehow continue updating the G1, I can't promise anything," Queru added. T-Mobile then issued a statement which said, "We plan to continue working with Google to introduce future software updates to the T-Mobile G1. Reports to the contrary are inaccurate."
