Firmware update coming soon for the T-Mobile G1, sans sweet tasty Cupcake

The next two weeks are sure to test the patience of American G1 owners as a T-Mobile rep has confirmed by way of the official forums that a new firmware build, 1.1 RC33, will be coming sometime soon (although it has been said that the update has already been seeded to “a small number of users” as of yesterday). We’ll start off by stating the bad news that Cupcake will not be a part of the new release, although RC33 does feature many sorely-needed improvements. Specifically, it will “include new system enhancements such as the ability to save pictures or files to file by long-pressing an item, check for system updates, and use the Google Voice Search feature.” Other than that, some bugs have been fixed here and there but that’s all she wrote. Okay, it does kind of suck, but Google Voice Search is a pretty good consolation prize, no?
