For those not familiar with the GT-i5510, this is a GSM slider phone that has a 600mHz single core Qualcomm MSM7227 processor, 512 MB of RAM and 512 MB of ROM. Not much different of a stat sheet than the Nexus One which had 1gHz single core Qualcomm QSD8250 Snapdragon, 512 MB of RAM and 512 MB of ROM.

 

Owners of the first official Google phone, the Nexus One, will not be getting the upgrade [because] the hardware was simply too old to run the new operating system.

There are already developers who have created unofficial ICS ports for the Nexus One, but it is surprising that a handset with less impressive hardware than the Samsung Moment can support ICS but Google leaves Nexus One owners out in the cold.

Google has been vexing the last 3-5 months with their attitude about supporting the Nexus line and how they approach privacy issues, to seemingly letting Google Wallet/Music and other subsystems just sink without doing anything publicly to support them. Their laissez faire attitude toward business makes my head hurt.
