Those of you wondering whether or not the original Nexus phone would be getting Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich can rest not-so-easy with the answer Google’s Hugo Barra reportedly given The Telegraph. The Nexus One is apparently too old to receive the upgrade.
We’d imagine the CPU and GPU alongside limited internal memory are Google’s main cause of concern considering Ice Cream Sandwich requires a bit more juice than Eclair, Froyo or Gingerbread. Not all hope is lost, of course – we know the development community will put forth their best efforts to bring it over and have it run smoothly. And who knows, perhaps it’ll inspire Google to do the same. As it stands, only the Nexus S and Prime are getting Ice Cream Sandwich. [via Android Central]
