Play WoW on Your Cell Phone

    There has been a lot of talk lately about a mobile version of World of Warcraft, but few people know that you can actually play World of Warcraft right now on your cell phone.
    Enter a service called Vollee which describes itself as "PC games on your 3G mobile". Vollee streams PC game content to your mobile phone, which means it's service doesn't actually install the game onto your phone. Right now the only supported game is Second Life, but according to CEO Martin Dunsby, World of Warcraft is most definitely in the works.
    "Clearly there's huge demand from Warcraft players, and we'd love to
    satisfy that demand. We believe mobile is an essential part of any
    virtual world experience," says Dunsby. "In the real world, people want
    to be able to take their email and chat mobile, and the exact same
    thing is true for virtual worlds."
    I have personally never understood the demand of playing your favorite MMOs on a cell phone device - I don't even know how you'd be able to effectively play a game such as World of Warcraft on your cell phone (I'm guessing rading will definitely be out of the question). But I can see wanting to log in and check your auctions or something like that with it.
    If you want to try it out it is in open beta right now and it's free. You can sign up here.
