GameString Gets World of Warcraft Working on an Android Smartphone

Attention all WoW fans!  Your dreams of never being separated from your online universe are nearly a reality.  GameString is a company that has built their business model based on a gaming within the cloud mentality.  Meaning they offer game streaming to devices that can support the service.  Basically, you can play your games anywhere and on any machine without having to have it physically installed on said machine.  You actually run the game from one of GameString’s servers and then it is streamed to your device.

Using what they dubbed the Adrenaline Host Server and some custom UI controls for a touchscreen interface, GameString has been able to stream WoW to a freaking smartphone!  It’s the HTC Desire to be exact, which I believe runs the Android OS, so here we have yet another amazing feat accomplished on an Android based device.  The video below shows a demo of this awesomeness taking place, and I must say it looks fantastic considering it’s being streamed to a f*cking phone!  Unreal!  Technology is great and so are the geeks who push the envelopes with it.  Head on over to this link if you want to get in on the Adrenaline Host Server beta.  You’ve been coming to the conclusion that this functionality may completely seal you off from reality…
