Future of Android 'Cupcake' update uncertain

A hotly-rumored branch of updates to the Android operating system that goes by the unusual moniker "cupcake" may not be released to the public.

AndroidTapp received a message from the T-Mobile Forums admin which was traced all the way back to Google via T-Mobile's Product Development and PR departments. In the message it said, "According to the Android team, "Cupcake," which is the code name for an Android software build, is still a work in progress that is considered to be a development branch and not for general availability."

While still not more than a rumor, the very existence of the Cupcake branch and its ability to bring video camera functions and an onscreen keyboard to the T-Mobile G1, is technically still rumor as well.
