PhoneArena has stumbled across a brief YouTube video that pits the browsers of the upcoming LG Optimus 2X and iPhone 4 against each other. Unfortunately, there are few (read: no) details available on how the test was run, and there are only two "trials" - hardly scientific, but hey, it's something, right?

As you can see, the 2X manages an impressive lead, even managing to pull up Flash-laden Yahoo in significantly less time than the iPhone 4.

Yesterday, we received an email tip about a new app called PacMap, which blends virtual/augmented reality, Google Maps, and... PacMan. Unsure of what to make or think of this potentially dangerous, but extremely original and interesting concept, I decided to test the waters last night by submitting the app to reddit. This morning, it was #1 in /r/android, which shows that thinking outside the box is always welcomed. Oh, and did I mention that PacMap is open source?

A new round of games that incorporate one of my favorite Android services, OpenFeint, has recently been released. We've gotten our all-too-idle hands on several of these games and, let me tell you, some impressive things are being brought to the table.  While flipping through the games and wasting all of my time, one game stuck out to me. Maybe it was the nostalgic feel of it. Maybe it was the Indiana Jones throwback feeling of it.

The MIUI custom ROM has pushed the limits of creativity and customizability ever since it was unleashed a few months ago by Chinese developers, seemingly out of nowhere. At times, you can't even recognize that this is actually Android, which, I suppose, is actually a compliment to Android itself. If it didn't resemble the iPhone UI so much at times, I would have probably enjoyed it a lot more, but nevertheless, it's incredible to see what a smart group of talented people can come up with when they put their minds together.

Still playing with dummy units while shopping for your next phone at your local retailer? Those things are annoying, aren't they? You can hold them in your hand, but you can't touch or interact with them in any way.

Best Buy may just have the solution. You'll have to take a few steps back in order to see the new Nexus S demo unit in all its glory, because it's a fully functional 42" monster, complete with a working touch screen, live wallpaper, apps, and everything that a real Nexus S contains.

Gameloft, the game publisher with arguably the most advanced Android games, which you, unfortunately, won't find in the Market (I guess they really hate giving Google the 30% fee), announced its latest daily Christmas promotion. On the 22nd day of December, Gameloft is giving away Hero Of Sparta, an RPG with awesome 3D graphics, for absolutely free.

The game's dedicated page lists it at $4.99, but this special url offers the freebie in exchange for your phone number, which Gameloft promises to use exclusively for sending the download link.

Remember the ninja's unboxing video created for the Nexus One launch by Patrick Boivin? Created using the stop-motion animation technique, the video painted a story of 3 of the greatest ninjas in the world who happened to find a box. In this box - a Nexus One in dire need of unwrapping. Long story short - if you haven't seen the video, here it is, in all its creative goodness:

Fast forward to yesterday's mysterious tweet by @googlenexus:

Take a wild guess who the friends are and then call 262-563-9875 (in the U.S.) ;-]

The ninjas are indeed back, this time with the Nexus S, and they're kicking it up a notch.
