Android Dev Phone 1.1 Fixes Key Problems

If you wanted the unlocked $400 Android G1 phone but were reluctant because of its problems, the new 1.1 update fixes most, but still leaves the issue of running paid applications partially unsolved.

Now, the Dev Phone 1 will be able to access the Paid apps in the store, although according to Developer Advocate Dan Morrill, people with this kind of G1s won’t be able to install copy-protected apps. The update fixes the alarm clock, Gmail, pop3 email accounts, mail notifications, and maps, as well as adding support for search by voice. [Phandroid]
