Remember when we told you that the Lenovo Thinkpad Android tablet would be getting a taste of Ice Cream too? Well, it’s starting to happen right now in the UK and some areas in Western Europe. Some members of the Lenovo Community Forum are reporting that ICS has been rolled out to their Thinkpad tablet via an OTA (over the air) update. One member posted that US certification for the roll-out is scheduled for June 18th while the rest of the world will have the ICS update delivered to their Thinkpads one month shortly thereafter.

Meanwhile, those who have received the update are saying that Ice Cream Sandwich has made quite a few improvements to the functionality and speed of their Thinkpads, particularly in the areas of GPS functionality, faster performance, and compatibility with Chrome Beta for Android.

So, if you happen to own the Lenovo Thinkpad and purchased it in the UK, then you might be in for a treat. Try checking the update settings on your tablet, and let us know if you’re in store for some ICS action! You might just find Ice Cream Sandwich waiting for you.

And, having updated my Samsung Galaxy Note to ICS a couple of days ago, I can assure you that you’ll definitely like Ice Cream Sandwich. As for those in the US – just be patient. Pretty soon, your Thinkpad will have a taste of Ice Cream Sandwich too.

So that’s one more tablet maker hopping on board the ICS bandwagon – who’s next? Anyone out there have any thoughts on the improvements baked into ICS for their Thinkpad? Let us know!
