Lenovo IdeaPad and ThinkPad Tablets to Get ICS Upgrade in Q2
Users of the Lenovo IdeaPad and ThinkPad tablets will be ready to join the Ice Cream Sandwich bandwagon soon according to several online reports. Google Android will be launching upgrades to the latest version of the popular platform that will suit users of said tablets.
After its launch last July 2011 with Android Honeycomb, there has been no move to upgrade to Ice Cream Sandwich apart from this one, and many have been feeling that it has been long overdue.
The SDK for Ice Cream Sandwich itself has been released on October 19th last year, while the open-source code was launched on November 14th. Since then, many Android tablets have upgraded to the new version, and many have been manufactured running specifically on it.
Lenovo users, nonetheless, have plenty to rejoice about with this update. For the two tablets, Ice Cream Sandwich is expected to deliver enhanced performance and computing speed.
There are also several changes to the UI, including new virtual buttons, a new typeface, the arrangement of widgets, and a new layout for the gallery. Other improvements include one in the copy-paste function, error correction, camera app, automatic browser syncing, screenshot capture, voice integration, tabbed browsing, and data usage settings.
