Planning on buying a Nexus S when it's released tomorrow? You may want to re-think that: LG has just officially announced the next phone in the Optimus line, the Optimus 2X. What makes this phone so special? Aside from all the regular features in high-end Android phones, it's packing the dual core Tegra 2 processor, a first for any phone. And the rest of the phone's specs won't disappoint, either:
- 1 GHz dual core, Tegra 2 processor
- 4-inch display
- Android 2.2 with plans to upgrade to Android 2.3
- 8 megapixel rear camera, 1.3 megapixel front-facing camera
- 1080p video playback
- Gyro sensor
- 1,500 mAh battery
- microSD card slot
According to the press release, the Optimus 2X will be released in Korea next month, with a launch in Europe and Asia to come shortly after.

US Cellular may not have the most impressive lineup of phones in the world, but it would be hard to say no to getting one of them free nonetheless. And come December 17th, customers will be able to do just that - get any of US Cellular's phones for just $0.00.
Actually, it gets even better than that - if you decide to grab an Android device (or any smartphone, for that matter), you'll also receive $100 credit
towards your first bill. (Update: US Cellular has reached out to us to let us know that the credit will actually be made up of $50 towards your first bill and another $50 for your second one.

Friday morning I received a surprise visit from UPS - and fortunately it wasn't the sort of surprise visit that requires me to then take a 20 lb. package over to my neighbor's place because the guy was too lazy to read the street number.
A somewhat hefty box, with a seemingly random sender name on it from Louisville, KY had been shipped overnight to my humble abode. I immediately knew it was a CR-48 laptop. Or a bomb. I signed up for the CR-48 Pilot Program moments after it was unveiled, but I certainly didn't expect to actually get a device - and definitely not so quickly.
