UK G1 owners beginning to see RC9 update, but its not all good news

According to some recent reader comments, it appears that the RC9 update has begun the roll-out process for UK based G1 users. Initially, the update was thought to be similar to what we saw here in the US with RC33, however based on those same comments I am not sure what it actually included.

We have heard more than a few comments that are along the line of “can’t work out what’s different.” Some users have mentioned that RC9 is still lacking voice search, latitude, any MSN/AOL/Yahoo chat options, and as it was written for us “worst of all” — no paid applications.

A few positive items that were mentioned is that the applications seem to have the ability to auto-check for newer versions and that the internal storage has been increased by about 10MB.

Not being from the UK, I am relying on others to provide some updates, unfortunately what I have read so far sounds pretty disappointing. If you are a UK based G1 user who has received the RC9 update we would love to hear your thoughts. Hit up the comments below and give us the good (and bad) details.
