What version of ICS is the tablet running.

When i got mine it did not have the option either, however there was an update available, but i decided to go with Cyanogen Mod 9 which has face unlock.

TBH though after using it for a few days, the novelty wore off and it became more of an annoyance than anything.

Have you tried checking for any updates through Kies?

If there is no Face unlock on 4.0.4 then i would say it is definately due to me running Cyanogen Mod 9 on my tab.

Codeworkx must have bundled this as part of the rom.

If you have it on your phone already, then it's even easier installing it on your tablet.

You just have to ensure that you flash the correct version of CWM for your region.

I have it on my Galaxy S3 phone with ICS 4.0.4 and it works great. I updated my Galaxy Tab 10.1 to ICS 4.0.4 today an it is not available. Maybe it is not on the tablet.

There are quite a few apps appearing on the Play store which may be compatible with the Tab, especially if you are not intending on rooting your Tablet and installing a custom rom.
