I knew that when the T-Mobile G1 and  the T-Mobile MyTouch 3G were released, they’d be destined for an OTA gas chamber as their under-spec’d hardware proved too little to handle Android’s ambitious growth. While the MyTouch 3G has always been a bit more capable (in terms of ROM space, at least), the future looked bleak for it, as well.

That uncertainty can now be thrown out of the window as Andrew Sharrard – vice president of product innovation at T-Mobile – states they’re testing the new update internally. No word on how those tests are going, but we did learn that it’d be Android 2.1 underneath HTC’s neat-looking Sense UI (most probably the Espresso variation found in the upcoming T-Mobile MyTouch Slide).

As for the G1? No word on any development for that device yet, but I definitely wouldn’t hold my breath. We’ll bring you more details about the OTA as they become available.
