Owners of the Android dev phone can now head over to HTC’s website and update their G1 to the official 1.5 version of Android. This early release for dev phones will provide developers with a few weeks of on-device testing of their software before the highly anticipated update is rolled out to the general public in May. All tools, instructions and necessary radio, system and recovery images are available directly from HTC via the read link below. Dev phone owners out there who take the plunge and update their handset, hit us up in the comments with your first impressions of this latest Android offering. As for the rest of you, don’t worry — the wait is almost over.

Thanks, Carlton!
