It shouldn’t come as surprise to many of us that the Nexus One won’t be getting an official update to Android 4.0 – Ice Cream Sandwich. According to Google’s Hugo Barra, as reported by the Telegraph, the Nexus One is just too old to receive the update. Which is basically what we figured, and why it wasn’t on our prediction list to get the ICS upgrade.

In all reality, the hardware simply isn’t powerful enough to ensure for a good experience. But, as we have all gotten used to over the last couple years, we fully expect someone to put together a ICS ROM for the Nexus One, hopefully someone over at XDA is working on it for us.

Is this news for you to upgrade your Nexus One to perhaps the Galaxy Nexus or another phone? Does this make you sad?
