Google "The announcement that Nexus One users won't be getting upgraded to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich led some to justifiably question Google's support of their devices. I look at it a little differently: Nexus One owners are lucky. I've been researching the history of OS updates on Android phones and Nexus One users have fared much, much better than most Android buyers." I'm happy the modding community takes care of orphaned devices, but a solution it is not. I'm hoping the crop of Android phones released this past year - which were not included in this analysis - fair better. If there's one thing Google should steal from Apple, it's their iOS update support.

"The Nexus range.

First sentence in this article: "Nexus One users won't be getting upgraded to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich"

It has been consistently updated to the latest release, and until 4.0 is launched in a few weeks that is still true ‐ I was merely replying to the question…

iPhone & iPhone 3G no longer get the latest release, does that discount all iPhones from being included? no.
