This summer, coming to a T-Mobile store near you, it's the return of the Android. The operator has announced that it will launch its second Android-based device later this year which will include the updated Android 1.5 'Cupcake' operating system. However, existing T-Mobile G1 customers will also be able to enjoy the 'Cupcake' in May via an over the air update. This will allow customers to both record and playback video, upload video to YouTube and photos to a personal Picasa Web Album, as well as have access to a touch-screen keyboard. It would seem a sensible move by the operator with Vodafone's own Android device, the HTC Magic which will also run on the 'Cupcake' OS, arriving in stores on 1 May.
T-Mobile has enjoyed success with the G1 having sold nearly 100,000 handsets since its launch six months ago. The T-Mobile G1 is available for free on contract at £30 per month, while Vodafone's HTC Magic will come at the slightly more expensive £35 a month.
