Samsung Galaxy Ace, Gio get CyanogenMod10 ROMs despite their older chips
If you want to change that, you should be on XDA Developers where all the development happens and now the Samsung Galaxy Ace and Gio, some of the most affordable low-end Androids, got the CyanogenMod 10 ports.
CyanogenMod 10 is the Jelly Bean based version of the custom ROM. If you want to flash it, just check out the links below where you’ll find all the detailed information you need.

And that is the beauty in Android - your device gets supported (officially or unofficially) for a much longer time than the iPhone.

I wonder why everybody is ignoring the Galaxy Note. C10 on SIII, SII even ace but no note ...

Ah no. IPhone 3gs even got upgrades last year. Its a 3 year old phone. How many Android phones can you day that about

If by "upgrades" you mean iOS 5.2 - because about 90% of iO6's features are NOT available to the 3GS - then yes. You get to enjoy your VIP mailbox. Woohoo.

Android on the other hand - DOES support the full features on every phone. And yes - even phones from 2009:

If you have a 3GS, ask Siri.
Oh, wait, you can't.

Not everybody root their phones so if itnt official it cant be called an update. People should ask OEMs how come develoers can port newer versions on old low level smartphones and they dont?

BS. If it's an update - it's an update - official or not.
