The Ice Cream Sandwich update won't enable some hardware-specific features such as Android Beam, which uses NFC (near-field communications) technology to share Web content, maps and directions between devices simply by tapping them together. The ThinkPad doesn't have NFC capabilities.

The update will give Lenovo an edge over the competition, that is, until the competition unleash the power of Ice Cream Sandwich on their respective tablets.
