    Will the Maps application contain the Latitude fuctionality after updating?

  • Kim Poh Liaw

    not sure about this but the new google map for mobile can be downloaded at google.com/latitude with your mobile browser

  • Mike

    Actually you cant download it from google.com/latitude right now. All you’ll get is a Coming Soon on the page. No download link.

  • Kim Poh Liaw

    maybe not for Android smartphone but I have already downloaded the new google map on my Touch HD (windows mobile). I heard from someone at AndroidCommunity.com forum that it is included in the RC33 firmware!

  • Bphone

    @ Onno ter wiisscha

    Yes the google latitude is included in the firmware update.

  • Kyle

    Um…Battery life fix? Or maybe they just chose not to announce that to keep from admitting that it’s an issue.

    @Bphone I have the developer version of the G1. How do I stay up to date with firmware? Wait for a new SDK version? (The over the air updates from T-Mobile will be ignored by my phone)

  • Andrew

    On battery life, it’s not perfect by any means, but I have had a VERY noticeable improvement over time. I go 2 days per charge now (w/ BT on) as opposed to 8 hours when I first got the device.

  • jared

    I’m still on RC30, which shipped with the phone. How are you notified when you get an update?

  • Jeremy

    Why can’t we have apps installed on to a sd card?!

  • Robert

    There is a 1.1 firmware for the Developer phone. You can search for ADP 1.1 and should find links to it fairly easily.

  • Jeremy Jeffery

    Still no way to save e-mail attachments?

  • logicslayer

    @Jared: You will have a notification right below the notification bar.

    @Jeremy Jeffery: Nope. That still sucks.

  • Vully

    “Ability to save pictures recieved as MMS”
    Just tried it. Still doesnt have this feature. I have to use a 3rd party app to do it. GHEY!

    wait no longer for RC33 update for G1 non rooted phones… click here http://forums.pinstack.com/showthread.php?s=9995f8dcfcd6cc55d9b033e3564480f8&p=1050783#post1050783

  • josh

    im in houston and i got my update yesterday.
    my g1 used to get hung after being on the browser for a while then going straight back to the home screen. and yes it has latitude, but none of my friends have it yet so its useless for now..

  • David

    Yeah, wish they would fix that issue with installing programs. Only having a few things installed and running out of space because you can’t install it to SD card is major draw back.

  • [spencer]

    It is longatude. I just got the update, everything here is true.

    I can not seem to save MMS still. Anyone else having this issue after the update? If so, did you wait for the OTA or download and install RC33?

  • http://blog.tenkely.net Tenkely

    Never mind, I was long pressing the picture when I should have been long pressing in the white area next to it… my bad… heh
