mjschmidt: I changed country on HTC.com and saw G1 there. Guess the HTC tech that responded to my inquiry either did not know this or was skirting my question for some reason.
I am responding to the ticket now and am going to see what he comes back with this time.
Although, if he wasn't aware that G1 was manufactured by HTC, what are the chances he is going to know anything about this update?
Sorry for the erroneous post but I was only going by what the support person responded in the ticket.
