Fans of retro-gaming, rejoice - Dragon's Lair has made its way to Android. Originally available as an arcade game back in 1983, this quirky game takes you on the journey of a brave knight on a mission to save a beautiful princess - a pretty typical storyline indeed. That's probably the only thing typical about this game - given its age, that is.

Dragon's Lair changed the way games were played when it hit the scene; controls were different, graphics were better, gameplay was more fluid - you name it, Dragon's Lair made it happen.

Good news for everyone waiting for the Galaxy Nexus on Verizon: Galaxy Nexus units have started showing up at Verizon stores. This can mean only one thing - release is imminent. We've been waiting long enough for any details about the GN's US release, so without further ado, the goods:

As you can see, the packaging is about as clean as it gets - a solid white box, suggesting these are just training units.

The European GSM variant of HTC's foray into the tablet world, the Flyer, is currently getting its long-awaited bump up to Honeycomb 3.2.1. The update brings many new features to the tablet, including the latest version of Sense for Tablets with "enhanced internet browsing, mail, calendar, and more all optimized for the 7-inch screen."

The Wi-Fi-only version hasn't been left behind completely, either - HTC states that it will receive its Honeycomb update soon, but no ETA has been given.

We've seen plenty of el-cheapo Android tablets hit the market in the last several months - most of which are running a phone version of Android, with no access to the Market or other Google products. Looks like MIPS Technologies is in the game to change the way we look at budget tablets, as it just announced a $99 ICS tablet. Yeah - $99. With ICS. Soak it up.

The 7-inch tablet is equipped with a 1GHz single-core MIPS-based XBurst CPU, and has the features we've all come to expect from a modern tablet, including Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, dual cameras, HDMI out, and microSD card slot.

Looks like Verizon is going with the go big or go home motto pretty heavily these days - it has been attacking plans to expand its LTE network across the country with great earnest, and now it has entered into an agreement with multiple cable companies to purchase 122 Advanced Wireless Service Spectrum licenses for a cool 3.6 Billion smack-a-roos.

The deal, which will have to be cleared by the FCC, will allow VZW to grow its LTE network even further, giving it an even bigger advantage over AT&T.

If there is one thing that has been on my to-do lost for the biggest part of my life, it's blow stuff up with a tiny tank. Since that's highly unlikely to happen in the physical world, I can now turn to Tank Riders from Polarbit to fulfill this lifelong dream in digital space.

As you can see, Tank Riders is a damn good-looking game. The environments are rich, graphics are nice, gameplay looks smooth, and, best of all, you get to blow stuff up.

We all knew it was going to happen - the first lawsuits are being filed against Carrier IQ and its data-stealing nature. Not only is CIQ getting hit with a suit, but HTC and Samsung are also being thrown into the ring since many of their phones support the software.

The suit claims that Carrier IQ is in violation of the Federal Wiretap Act, which makes intercepting "oral, wire, or electronic communications" illegal.

Sure, DisneyWorld may seem like a great place of family, fun, and joy, but Australia's Tesltra is looking to one up Walt's fun-filled world in the hearts and minds of geeks across the globe with Androidland. With a name like that, you can only imagine what sort of amazing things await behind those doors, but, luckily, that won't be necessary - check out the video:

We first told you about DSLR Controller back in August, and there was immediately some kick-back due to its combination "high" price tag and beta status. Still, if you're looking for a way to combine your Android phone or tablet with a Cannon EOS DSLR on-the-cheap, Chainfire released a free, lighter version of DSLR Controller called Remote Release into the Market just a while ago.

Remote Release offers limited functionality compared to DSLR Controller, but may fit the bill perfectly for some of you.

If you've always dreamed of brewin' and runnin' your own moonshine, but feared the slight legal implications of such a practice, then Vector Unit's new game Shine Runner holds the ticket to make all of your dreams come true.

Vector Unit is the development team behind the amazing jetski racing game Riptide GP, so we already know that they can knock out some fantastic graphics in aquatic environments, and Shine Runner looks no different.
