Consider this a tease. T-Mobile began a phased roll-out for two of their Android phones this week, but they are both still stuck with Android 1.5. The carrier plans to eventually have Android 2.1 updates, but those will not be ready till Q2 2010. In the mean time, customers can enjoy improved battery live, new boot screen animations, and Where’s Waldo.
