    At least this time round cupcake rumours aren't causing mass hysteria.

    It would suck if it was April Fool's joke but I'd laugh. And give Voda/HTC mad props. That'd be the best April Fool's joke ever.

    I have a feeling many people would snap their phone in half in frustration and TMO would be getting a lot of, "My dog bit my phone in half but I have insurance" type walk-ins. Hah.

    So I wonder if it will follow suite and the US get it first followed by the rest of the world around 6 weeks later but again with features missing or will we al catch up and get the features that are missing from not just the last update but the one before that also?

    Cynical, me? no! realist

    Well the HTC Magic is coming out in Europe only for the time being if I'm not mistaken....

    Assuming that Cupcake will be included with the phone...
    For the states to get cupcake before the UK...would be....just.....wrong.....
    So.....wrong....

    Although I do see what you mean....

    As long as it's an update worth having....

    I don't mind if it's some...or all of it....

    Hell...I'd be happy if it was just ONE worthwhile feature in the update...

    Jesus Freak will release his own Cupcake update soon after no doubt.
    He is always way ahead of the carriers OTA updates, atleast in Australia anyway.

    I thought that update would also include dual touch. So we can zoom photos using two fingers.

    Multi touch is a proof of concept created by Luke Hutchison and packaged up by JesusFreke.
