Samsung is no stranger to teasers, but with Mobile World Congress just days away, the excitement surrounding the Galaxy S5 is reaching fanboy-ish proportions. It's a perfect time to drop a teaser video that throws around the number 5 to get everyone all amped up, and that's what Samsung just did.

The trailer has a lot of verbs and nouns raised to the 5th power, which I suppose is how Samsung has decided to indicate this is about the Galaxy S5 without actually saying it.

Who's ready for a new Angry Birds game? If you're not, you might just want to ignore the gaming news for the next month or so. After a tepid critical response from kart racer Angry Birds Go, the next entry in the series was revealed as a short social post leading to a small sub-site of AngryBirds.com. The title will be Angry Birds Stella.

According to the Angry Birds Wiki (of course there's an Angry Birds Wiki), 'Stella' is the name of the Pink Bird whose only real job before now was playing Princess Leia in Angry Birds Star Wars.

In case you haven't heard yet, there's this thing in Berlin next week. It's called IFA. It's a bit of a big deal, been going for about 90 years now. And between now and then, every single major manufacturer is going to remind you that they have new stuff to show off in Germany. Today it's Sony, teasing what appears to be the Xperia Honami (AKA the Xperia i1), the successor to the Xperia Z, in a short but sweet sizzle reel.

So it's been a while since LG made a tablet. They aren't the only ones that have been skittish in a market dominated by the iPad and the low-margin Kindle Fire (I don't see Motorola or HTC rushing to make anything new). But as an in-country rival to Samsung, LG's absence has been felt more than others. It looks like the company intends to make a return with the G Pad 8.3, a sequel to the original Optimus Pad.

A strange new presence has made its way onto the Internet. It's a website, innocuous as it is mysterious, with a stylized version of a binary clock counting down: cyngn.com. Just in case you're a bit rusty on your CompSci, the numbers are counting down to August 19th of this year, as testified by the site's source code.

Here's the code in question:

var theFinalCountDown = new Countdown({ year : 2013, month : 8, day : 19, width : 800, height : 200, rangeHi : "month", style : "flip" });

Of course, any web sleuth worth his digital fedora knows what to do when presented with this sort of mystery: check the Whois file.

A mysterious video that starts with "Nothing can be perfect, things can be better" was just posted by the CyanogenMod team on YouTube. The 31-second animation teases... something.

What could it be? A CyanogenMod phone? Upcoming Android 4.3 support (I really doubt this is what the video is about)? Something else completely mind-blowing or ultimately disappointingly overhyped? One of the frames shows the word "FREE" on a lockscreen - that can't be a coincidence.

LG would like to let you know that you're perfect, just the way you are. Yes, you. And you, in the back. Not you with the Galaxy S4, though. Their latest posted video from the official LG Mobile YouTube account tells a tale of happy people running around New York City, taking photos and videos of various posters and signs bearing the legend, "To me, you are perfect. From G." Plus, there's a great big numerical "2" at the end.

Looks like ASUS has something up its sleeve for Computex this year, as it just released a rather uninformative teaser for the event. Of course, teasers are supposed to be pretty uninformative, so I guess this one is doing its job.

Throughout the video we get brief glimpses of past ASUS products, along with what could be some upcoming products. The most notable image in the bunch comes close to the end of the video, with what appears to to be a new stylus-sporting tablet:

Of course, there's no indication that any of this is Android-related; given ASUS' past dedication to the OS, however, it's unlikely that we won't see at least one new gadget with our favorite open source OS running on it.

The fourth incarnation of Gameloft's action-RPG Dungeon Hunter franchise is going to be coming out in the near future, but the developer is already priming the pump with a teaser trailer. Unlike some other pre-release trailers, this one actually includes gameplay footage. Take a gander.

It looks like the same kind of hack-and-slash gameplay from past editions of Dungeon Hunter at work here. There will still be an arena where you can do battle against other humans, but the main quest will surely be the meat of the experience.

At this point in the smartphone wars, it's not enough to build an awesome handset. You need to market it. That's the trouble that the One X had last year and the One faces this year. Well, so far the One has opened with its initial shots of BoomSound®, Ultrapixels and Zoe. So, what is Samsung returning fire with? A small, blonde-haired boy named Jeremy.

Okay.

For those unable to watch the video at work (thanks for spending your time with us instead of doing your job), here's the gist: a young boy's butler drives him to a board room where he is told he will be the "secret messenger" for the Galaxy S IV by a title screen.
