Jelly Bean install base rising slowly, Ice Cream Sandwich growing faster

It's time for the update on Android install bases again. It's always interesting to see which versions of Android are growing, which ones are shrinking, and what percentage of Android owners are still hanging around with the old versions. The data from this report is generated based on devices accessing Google Play in a two-week period, which in this case is the period up to November 1. The story of this report is the incredibly slow growth of Jelly Bean, and the solid growth of Ice Cream Sandwich.

LG Optimus L9 now available at T-Mobile

Just a heads up if you've been waiting to get your hands on the LG Optimus L9 - the new handset has officially launched at T-Mobile. The L9 doesn't fetch too steep a price, which makes it a good choice for those who need a decent handset on the cheap. Make no mistake, the L9 isn't going to be burning up the benchmarks, but it should be a suitable device for those who don't need to have the latest and greatest.

Motorola Electrify M announced for US Cellular

It looks like US Cellular is primed to get a brand new Motorola handset, this one called the Electrify M. As the name implies, it isn't all that different from the popular DROID RAZR M, and to make things even better, it'll be compatible with US Cellular's 4G LTE network. It's also relatively inexpensive, provided you sign a two-year contract and take advantage of a $100 mail-in rebate.

That's especially true if you're in the market for an inexpensive tablet, as we're thinking the 80 Cobalt's specs won't exactly demand a high price tag.

Casio’s Paper Writer V-N500 tablet will set you back $2,500

We've seen our share of head-scratch inducing tablets throughout the years, but Casio's new Paper Writer V-N500 might just take the cake. The new tablet is aimed at business professionals, and comes complete with a front-facing 5MP camera that can scan the documents you put in front of it. Documents can be placed inside the included cover (which is water and shock resistant, by the way), putting them up close and personal with the tablet's camera - something that should make scanning a breeze.

Verizon has finally dropped some information about the Ice Cream Sandwich updates for both the Motorola DROID Bionic and the LG Lucid.
