12:23pm: Announcing the worlds first Tegra 2 super phone, by LG, guess what it is? The Optimus 2X

12:37pm: We took all the bandwidth during the test run. We all suck apparently but it was funny. I have it recorderd and will upload shortly.

12:38pm: saw Samurai II on the phone during the test run. Going to try and nab a video of it. Right now showing off Flash gaming on a non-tegra phone and the Optimus 2X. It is way faster.
