You know whats nerdier than contrasting the merits of the iPhone versus those of the Motorola Droid (twice)? Pitting the two phones against each other in a sound effect remix battle. You know what’s even nerdier than that? Absolutely nothing.

The folks over at Indaba Music have challenged their users to strive for that pinnacle of nerddom in an all out remix competition they’re calling Phone Wars. The results are… surprisingly pleasing.

There’s only one concrete rule of the competition: each entry must include at least one system sound effect from either the iPhone or the Droid. Most of the tracks — especially those currently leading the competition — use multiple. The current leader, Aurelien STRIDE’s Droid Hip Hop Mix, uses the the Droid’s “Ta-da” and “Beatbox” ringtones, with the infamous “DROOOOID” startup/notification sound thrown in for good measure.

Through some act of craziness on Indaba’s part, we’re not able to embed our favorite tracks. Here’s a list of just a few that are worth checking out:
