    Also, if you Google "xda" you will get eight sub links under the first search result, and the N1 is always in those eight sub links - just sayin'

    Rock on N1 xD
    In addition. I'm not sure the hardware will be a limitation as others have mentions it might. The 1Ghz Snapdragon can handle Honeycomb, and ICS is a mix of Honeycomb and Gingerbread. The only hardware limitation I can see might be the lack of memory.
    That's an interesting point!
    Nexus One comes with 512 MB of RAM and 512 MB of ROM I think?

    Do you think it will be the RAM side that will limit it? OR the ROM side that will limit it? If it limits it at all

    Whichever one is the guts. Frees up cache for speed. I forget which is which on a phone but do know its 512. That's still a pretty common memory for a good phone, so my guess is we're still good. The G1 is running froyo mow and that phone didn't have near the power the n1 and ns do.

    You smarter guys correct me,

    But, didn't the devs have to mess with the boot sectors to get the latest OS on the N1 and internal memory may not handle IC

    Also, aren't the newer OS's geared to tablets and that may pose an issue

    I am not the techy you guys are, so I may be getting this all backwards

    Honeycomb is for tablets. IC will be a catchall OS. I believe Google is combining GB and HC into IC in an attempt to prevent fractionalizing. Or what ever the catch phrase is.

    As for the bootup. Again I'm guessing, but if that were the case I would think that would be added into IC because it is a combo of GB and HC.

    But I'm no expert either.
