Ice Cream Sandwich is officially a no go for Google Nexus One

Google logoAs the first device to bear the Nexus moniker, the Google Nexus One is still a highly revered Android smartphone. Sadly however, its owners will not be able to (officially) enjoy an update to the latest Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

Google Nexus One

According to Hugo Barra - Android's product management director at Google, the hardware of the device is "simply too old to run the new operating system."Google Nexus S on the other hand, will get the ICS update shortly after the Galaxy Nexus hits the shelves.

While this is undoubtedly a disappointing piece of news, in case you happen to own a Nexus One, there is always the possibility of porting Ice Cream Sandwich to your device unofficially. After all, we've already seen this happen.
