Re: ICS 4.0 Update announced for May 22nd 2012

[Quote] I understand the difficulty in getting an update out, especially when its ICS. I wasn't upset or going complain about the long wait, until this weekend. After having purchased my thinkpad tablet (pre-ordered), I had a jealous girlfriend on my hands who I had to satisfy with a tablet as well. I went out and got her an Asus transformer back on blackfriday for $250 and had thought that at least she had something decent compared to my $500 tech. This weekend we were watching a video on her Asus and low and behold the update icon came up for her. She updated and right in front of me I saw icecream sandwich on a tablet that I spent half the amount of money and 100% less heartache and frustration. If Asus can push ICS out in a timely fashion then I don't see why Lenovo can't, especially after all the early adopters have had to go through. I regret this purchase once again just as I had in the months following its release. Between false promises for software and faulty hardware, I doubt we we ill ever see ICS. Perhaps next year.

Why are you so eager to get ICS 4.0? Is there any particular feature that you need and don't have already?

Some stability would be nice. I think a lot of people expect 4.0 to be more stable than the 3.1 we have right now.

Re: ICS 4.0 Update announced for May 22nd 2012

I have read somewhere (sorry, do not remember source) that Honeycomb was Google's experiment to see if tablets market is a good target for Android. Honeycomb is a good operating system, but looks too beta for the taste of most users (including me). This fact is the source of a lot of complains against the ThinkPad slate tablet.

 

Ice Cream Sandwich will have a large number of improvements in both UI design, operating system stability and general performance. Its new system font (Roboto) is more pleasant and easy to read on high-resolution tablet displays too.

 

In my humble opinion, sharing the operating system's source tree between smartphones and tablets will greatly improve bug fixing in next revisions of ICS (Lenovo, please, give us updates to these new ICS releases on the ThinkPad tablet!). Just think on the huge amount of users reporting bugs and testing the operating system. There is no an operating system for smartphones and an operating system for tablets anymore.

 

Multitasking and app management is much better in ICS too.

  • pen support at OS level & pen only mode
  • better stability (less random reboots, less force closes)
  • less buggy browser
  • security fixes (!)
  • the promised GPS fix
  • the fix for the SIM PIN issue (replacing the workaround)
  • etc.

 

Not confirmed, but demanded by many forum users and we all hope Lenovo is listening:

 

  • ability to hide the "honeybar"
  • fixing the cam focus
  • openvpn support
  • fixing the pen unresponsiveness (it seems that the pen only mode does not fix it; lets see...)
  • a full backup solution
  • no favorite app wheel (i.e. more vanilla experience)
  • the ability to remove the unneeded bloatware
  • last, but not least: root
