It’s dessert time for Lenovo’s ThinkPad Tablet. The Android 4.0 operating system—commonly known by its more delicious codename of Ice Cream Sandwich—will be available on our ThinkPad Tablet in May. It will be delivered as an over-the-air update
There’s been a lot of fuss about Ice Cream Sandwich in the marketplace, and for good reason. Here are three things we love about it, things you’ll be able to take advantage of on your ThinkPad Tablet when the update comes:
A new and improved browser with a significant speed boost that allows you to jump to your favorite content faster and even save it for later in case there's no network available.
Voice input that allows you to dictate text. As the voice input engine enters text, it underlines possible dictation errors in gray. After dictating, you tap underlined words to quickly replace them from a list of suggestions.
Face Unlock, a new screen-lock option that lets you unlock your device with your face. (Love that.) It takes advantage of the devices’ front-facing camera and state-of-the-art facial recognition technology to register a face during setup and then recognize it again when it’s time to unlock.
