If you own a Lenovo ThinkPad tablet and are wondering if it will ever be updated to run Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, then we have good news. The ThinkPad tablet will indeed be running the newest version of Google’s mobile operating system sometime in the second quarter of this year (so the update will arrive in April, May, or June).
That information comes from the Chinese company directly, according to ITworld. The Lenovo ThinkPad tablet clearly is a unique offering in the tablet space at this point, with its iconic branding and looks that borrow a bit from ThinkPad laptops. And let’s not forget that it has its own digitizer pen for those times when thumb-typing on your tablet simply isn’t an option.
It’s clearly one aimed more at professionals than the casual tablet user, and it’s nice to see that even such a niche offering won’t be forgotten, software-wise. Unfortunately at this moment we don’t have more detailed information, but we’ll keep you posted.
