Cupcake users report being denied access to the Android Market

Reports are beginning to surface detailing how some Cupcake users are being denied access to the Android Market. It seems that Google has recently blocked those users who are running the “G” build of Cupcake, however those running the “H” build are still safe, at least for the time being.

It was noted that those running the “H” build cannot browse, search for or purchase any apps. Assuming these reports are accurate, I guess this would be the Google way of letting people know they should relax and wait for the official release.

Of course, not running Cupcake myself I cannot verify this personally. If you have updated to Cupcake and are being blocked we would love to hear the details. Basically, it looks like users will have to choose between a virtual keyboard (and a few other features) or the Market. Personally I would choose the Market as I would rather remain without the keyboard then have to ditch any apps that I am already using.
