We're getting some great commentary from our readers over at the old "Have You Got Cupcake Yet?" post that went up a week ago. For the most part, everyone is still waiting to receive the goodness that is Cupcake (we are too). We've been assured that it's rolling out and a rough "schedule" (if you can even call it that) has been revealed. As follows:
- 5% of Android Devices will receive the Android 1.5 Cupcake Update on Monday, May 18th
- 15% on Tuesday, May 19th
- 30% on Wednesday, May 20th
- 45% on Thursday, May 21st
- 60% on Friday, May 22nd
- 75% on Saturday, May 23rd
- 90% on Sunday, May 24th
- 100% on Monday, May 25th
So as you can see, the plan is to release slowly but surely. Remember, it's supposed to come OTA (over-the-air) so the only thing we can (officially) do is just wait our turn. What we still don't really understand is why doesn't T-Mobile/Google/Android just make it available for official consumer download via website? That way the die-hard Android Users who've been waiting for Cupcake since who knows when can get to downloading while the casual Android user receives it OTA. Makes sense to us.
So let's start up the conversation again! Did anybody residing in the US get their Android 1.5 Cupcake on yet? Holler in the comments and don't forget to tell us where you're from!
Thanks for the tip Ryan!
