How do you get a World of Warcraft player to leaver their bedroom? By letting them play WoW on their Android smartphone wherever they go. Gamestring is hard at work making it a reality, and they are ready to show off what they have accomplished. A video demo on the HTC Desire shows the implementation of an on-screen virtual joystick and buttons for controlling your character.

The game doesn’t actually live on your phone, though. It must be run from a host server over a wireless network, so while you could potentially form a setup that would allow for gameplay far from home, you might not ever get much further than your backyard. Which is a step in the right direction. A baby step, but at least it will get WoW players up and moving.
