Cupcake to be last major update to the Dream/G1?

siren1Sound the alarm! The limited amount of internal flash on the G1 will be its undoing, says one fear monger. With only 256MB of ROM, the G1 began hemorrhaging after the Cupcake update and it’s a pretty safe bet that Donut and Éclair will both be bloated bastards (from a G1 owner’s perspective) and so goes the rumor. One of the Android devs from Google added flames to the fire with the following statement:

As much as I’m hoping that it’ll be possible to somehow continue updating the G1, I can’t promise anything.

That’d be a real bummer if true. Way to go, HTC. Viva la Motorola! (NOT!)
