Late last month, Lenovo made it clear that they intended to not only update their IdeaPad tablet to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, but also the ThinkPad business-oriented tablet. Unfortunately, back then, Lenovo was only providing generalized dates, with no hard dates to go on. We knew to expect it in the second quarter of this year, but nothing else beyond that.
But now the manufacturer has decided to start providing some dates, even if we aren’t looking at an exact day quite yet. According to Lenovo, the update to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich for the ThinkPad tablet will start seeing the light of day this May. And with the update, along with the standard Ice Cream Sandwich features, you’ll also get access to Face Unlock, as well as voice input for dictation.
As soon as we know more, we’ll pass it along. But, if you own a ThinkPad, at least you don’t have much longer to wait, right?
