Gathering if I'm using the preview of this update then there is no other update to download as it isn't finding anything new to download.

This is an OTA update rolling out in stages, just like the last one (per t-mobile's twitter account).

As usual all of the major android blogs seem to be leaving this detail out in their initial posts, or T-mobile is just continuing to do one hell of a fail job in making that point clear in their info/etc.

Got it. Eh, very little to rave about from the last update. Still 1.5 and not too thrilled now that I've become painfully aware that it's older than dirt.

These updates are more than likely preparing for the 2.1 upgrade. The screen (touch) sensitivity was improved greatly.
