I’ve always taken those Motorola Droid ads from Verizon with a grain of salt: I found it hard to believe that it did everything that the iPhone (or any of its competitors) don’t. It still can’t make me breakfast, do my laundry, or type these articles for me, but it can solve a Rubik’s Cube in under 25 seconds. ARM released a video a little more than a week ago showing the Droid sitting comfortably inside of a Lego-comprised contraption.

Using the Droid’s ARM-based processor, it assisted the mechanical mastermind in solving a Rubik’s Cube in under 25 seconds. Validity, you scream? Well, it does look like some software on the Droid was pre-configured to solve a specific cube setup (which is supported by the fact that they modified the cube before putting it inside of the machine) but let’s not rain on the parade too long – it’s still pretty cool. How long does it take you to solve a Rubik’s Cube?
