A T-Mobile spokesperson confirmed to us that “T-Mobile is working with all handset manufacturers…to ensure that devices capable of being updated to Android 2.1 are,” and when the Android 2.1 updates are out of the oven, the network “will endeavour to ensure that all our customers receive this software via download from our website.”

We can’t wait to see Android 2.1, which brings a better browser, improved UI and multiple Gmail account support, land on more smartphones, especially after playing with the HTC Legend. Since it’s up to the networks themselves to push out the updates in so many cases, it’s good to see T-Mobile keeping Android users in the loop on availability. Stay tuned for exact dates closer to the time.
