Fans of the Icewind Dale series of Dungeons & Dragons CRPG games from Interplay will want to check this out. Icewind Dale: Enhanced Edition has just come to the Google Play Store for Android at a price of $9.99. Not too long ago the Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition hit the Google Play Store too, and Icewind Dale was made by the same folks who made that one.

With the Android "Enhanced Edition" of Icewind Dale you have several unique improvements and aded features, just as with the Android version of Baldur's Gate. Here's a brief summary,

  • Swords and Sorcery: Discover dozens of new spells and items, including new magic armor and weapons.
  • Blackguards and Wizard Slayers: Select from more than 30 new kits and classes to create the perfect adventuring party.
  • A New Look: Experience the Enhanced Edition's all new interface, including the new Quickloot bar.
  • Bring A Friend: Join your fellow adventurers in cooperative, cross-platform multiplayer games.
  • See The Unseen: Explore quest content cut from the original game, now finished and restored.
  • More to Experience: Enjoy the countless bug fixes and improvements that await you in Icewind Dale: Enhanced Edition! Note on Localization: All in-game movies are English-only.
For fans of D&D CRPGs this is another must-have game in your collection and is well worth the price.

It hasn't been a dramatic turn around, but at least it appears that HTC is back on track to a real recovery. They just posted their Q3 earnings, and although they only eked out a tiny profit which was smaller than last quarter, it's still great news for them in the cutthroat Android world. It also means they are still moving forward and have come a long way from their precipitous fall.

Here's a quote with some of those financial details,

As you can see from the graph in the image above, HTC did worse this quarter than last quarter, but the fact that they are still in the positive is a "positive" sign. Apparently sales of their Desire line of phones has been going well. In Europe and the US the Desire 610 and 510 have had solid sales, and the Desire 816 did well in Taiwan, China, India and the Middle East.

It will be interesting to see what kind of sales...

Earlier this week we reported just how much of a flop the Fire Phone was for Amazon. The phone has had abysmal ratings, with only 2.3 stars on Amazon's own product page. Beyond that, the real problem with the phone is that Amazon priced it far too high and basically shot themselves out of the market.

Although this was obvious to anyone on the outside, including consumers, for some reason it wasn't obvious to the executives at Amazon. Otherwise they would have priced it appropriately and it might have done a bit better. Regardless, Amazon has seen the error of their ways and admit that the Fire Phone pricing was wrong. Here's a quote where they recently admitted as much,

At least the company is willing to shift when necessary. They actually had changed the price down to $1 in September, which lead to a significant sales improvement. (Well... duh!)

What's interesting is that Amazon is still committed to the device and plans to offer sequels in the future. At least this time they plan to price the phone more aggressively to match the market. We will see if the next generation Fire...

Matias Duarte of Google fame is showing off the camera quality of his new Nexus 6 by taking a couple of low-light Halloween shots. Both pics feature several Jack-o-lanterns at night and are pretty impressive. While we have no doubt that there are several phone cameras that take better shots than the Nexus 6, what is truly impressive is how much better these pics are compared to previous generation Nexus devices.

It probably shouldn't come as a surprise considering Google and Motorola went all out on the camera hardware this time by including a Sony IMX214 CMOS sensor with optical image stabilization (OIS). Sound off and let us know what you think.

Also, don't forget to check out our dedicated section for the Nexus 6 right here: Motorola Nexus 6 Android Forums at DroidForums.net

Here's a breakdown of specs for these devices:

  • 5-inch HD Super AMOLED display
  • 1.2GHz quad-core processor

New DROID Turbo owners need to be aware of a feature that isn’t currently available on their device, but will be by the end of the year – simultaneous voice and data. We are not sure why the device isn’t capable of simultaneous voice and data out of the box, but Verizon has confirmed that Advanced Calling 1.0 which is VoLTE is required for it to work. Verizon has also confirmed that Advanced Calling 1.0 will arrive for the device by the end of the year.

Knowing this, will you still purchase The Droid Turbo from Verizon, wait until the update to purchase it, or choose another phone such as Nexus 6 or Galaxy Note 4?

In March of last year, Google’s Larry Page announced that Andy Rubin was stepping away from the Android team at Google to work on making super smart robots. The move was a bit of a surprise, since he co-founded the operating system that has now taken over the smartphone world. But hey, people need change some times, and that’s apparently what Andy was looking for.

Today he is officially leaving Google. According to the Wall Street Journal, Rubin is “starting an incubator for start-ups interested in building technology-hardware products.”

One of the best parts of Cyanogen Mod 11 is the all new Theme Chooser. This theme chooser allows you to apply your perfect custom look. You can mix and match parts from your favorite themes. One of my favorite new themes for the new Cm11 theme chooser is the "reNu Lust Red" theme by BIGDX. This theme is the complete package. You get a blacked out red SystemUI, new app icons, blacked out gapps and system apps, new wallpaper, new bootanimation and more! The video above is a full review of what you will get with this great theme!
