Search "launcher" in the store. Go launcher is a popular one with many flavors.

I'm not talking about a launcher but really the big widget that lenovo put. The one that allows you to go straight to mail, watch, listen and read.

Mark,

 

That's GREAT news that a Vanilla ICS will be coming to the K1 in June!!!  My wife is very much looking forward to having some Android 4.0.x on her FAVORITE Tablet!!!  Be sure to keep us in the loop, and thanks again!

Mark,

Thanks for your help championing this on your end. I am sure I speak for other people who post when I say that it's appreciated. Lenovo won't regret stepping up to the plate on this.

Thanks Mark .. This is great news.

Lack of Lenovo customizations sounds even better

I'm sorta new to the Android game :P What does it mean when one says "Vanilla ICS (besides ICS, meaning IceCream Sandwich)....What does that entail? Sorry for the newbie question!

bdawg111 in the case of Android Vanilla means the source code released from google without any customizations added. Next companies like Lenivo or HTC will add custom UI and often custom enhancements even software or apps. In the Linux world this is then refered to as a Distribution or Flavor of Linux.

Hence Vanilla is the basic flavor of any Linux based ditribution and distro is short for distribution.

I hope this is real news from Mark..  love this tablet  as a matter of fact i got 2 last year.

 

Im running custom rom from http://forum.xda-developers.com and works awesome , no complains at all ( now that all the bloatware is removed).   i just hope that if they do indeed update us to ICS that the source code is also release.

I really could not "guess what" , but this is a game mentioned to sell more Hardware Devices and unfortunately You my Friends, loyal "Community supporters" with Your old HW Devices is the Victims in this Game, including myself too. Once more time this is Not Microsoft neither Apple - Your devices does not have already any value, New software is bundled with New devices only - You may wait, buy new or quit the game.

That is a launcher. The Lenovo one is a particularly crappy one, too, as it does not allow for much customization.
