Google says no Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich for Nexus One

The first smartphone Nexus, N1 manufactured by HTC, will not receive the update to Android 4.0 ufficialmemte because the hardware is obsolete and not recent.

Despite rumors come from internal sources to HTC , comes the confirmation from Google that the Nexus One will not officially receive the software update to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich smartphone because the hardware does not meet the minimum standards required by ICS.
Confirmation comes from Hugo Barra , who told The Telegraph that the Nexus has a hardware too old to work properly, the new version of Android.

The Nexus One, manufactured by HTC, was launched Jan. 5, 2010, and has a Qualcomm QSD8250 SoC with 1GHz Snapdragon CPU and GPU Adreno 200, 512MB of RAM and ROM . The Nexus One was undoubtedly one of the most supported by the Android developer community, and we are confident that this time they can create a ROM from ad hoc sources of Android 4.0. Cyanogen is undoubtedly the team in pole position, but others are already working on porting a functioning 4.0 SDK.

Barra has also confirmed that the update to Android ICS for Nexus S is in the works, and will arrive by Christmas. This choice of Google, to stop supporting the Nexus One, actually derives from the minimum system requirements, or is it simply a marketing choice?
