T-Mobile G1A Google Android update, "RC31," is scheduled to come to the T-Mobile G1 by the end of this month, according to a G1 specialist by way of GoogleAndBlog.

The update, originally scheduled for mid-January, "will be done in stages 'Over The Air' but it will be by region, not when you purchased the G1."

Additionally, the report notes that T-Mobile has a battery improvement program for the G1 in the works -- as in an update to make the unit more efficient and/or a replacement program -- which will be helpful with consideration to the phone's notoriously poor battery life. [Android roadmap]
