Google "Google's Hugo Barra confirmed that the latest version of Android will be delivered as a free upgrade to the existing Nexus S handset 'within weeks'. He said the search giant was aiming to get the software to owners of the previous flagship phone shortly after the release of the new Galaxy Nexus handset next month, well in time for Christmas. Owners of the first official Google phone, the Nexus One, will not be getting the upgrade, however. Barra said the hardware was simply too old to run the new operating system." Can someone enlighten me - the Nexus One has 512MB of RAM, a 1Ghz processor, and a 480x800 AMOLED or SuperLCD. Why on earth isn't this thing upgraded to ICS? Lameballs.

The design to decision to have small internal plus SD card storage haunts Android users all the time. You can only install apps on the small app partition. On some phones this fills up pretty quickly. Even if you have gigabytes available on your SD card you can only move installed apps there if they support it. And you have to do it manually, which is cumbersome and beyond the average user.
Apps that are big, like games, will download most of the program on first launch. The App store only contains the downloader for the real program. This is not good design. It's a clutch.
