Meanwhile, game developer Brainium Studios has released an HTML5 demo version of their $0.99 iPhone game Hand of Greed. iPhone and iPod Touch owners can play the free HTML5 demo by directing their mobile browsers to http://www.brainiumstudios.com/webapp/. Users are instructed to install the "app" on their homescreen where it can be launched and played. There are some obvious limitations in the HTML5 version -- no sound and limited graphical effects.

Other notable HTML5 demos we've seen include:
