Android: How do I get 1.5?

I found this post on Engadget: T-Mobile is beginning to deliver the new version to phones.  To my knowledge, I haven’t gotten the update yet — my phone hasn’t asked me to update.

The new version was announced at April 27th at the Google Developer’s blog.  In digging around, one of the things that I noticed was that the system image delivered with the SDK includes a video camera application.  I finally found the release features here.

Here are some of the features that caught my eye:

  • Refinement of all core UI elements — looking better is always good in my book
  • Accelerometer-based application rotations — I have a couple of games that use the Accelerometer so I know it works.  It will be nice to have more applications that use it!
  • Faster Camera start-up and image capture — The camera is horribly slow to capture pictures
  • Video recording — This will be cool
