"Google has begun distributing a patch to its Android mobile phone operating system, an early test for how nimbly the company can respond and how well the infrastructure works to distribute and install updates.

For the Android test phone I'm using, a T-Mobile G1, the update was smoother than the process by which the software problem came to light publicly on October 24.

I suppose this is part of the same patch but my G1 just alerted me of an update and i've noticed that now, when i plug my phone into a computer, it asks me if i want to mount it (as opposed to just charging it which still allows me to access the SD card from the phone). Nifty. Now where's my GrandCentral update?
