Wow! Imagine playing WoW on your Android phone
As far as the mobile set-up is concerned, an Adrenalin Host Server was used from a distance about 80 kilometers away, while an HTC Desire was connected to a home network that was running about 2Mbps both up and down. Using GameString's custom Dual-Mode technology system, the game is streamed from a home PC, using the cloud, to the phone. The system also allows for the game to have its own custom UI while you play the same game that is on the host computer. In this case, the game's mobile user interface is designed to help move your character around a touchscreen, such as a translucent dot for your thumb that quickly moves your character around the screen. Larger buttons appear for your spells.
All things considered, this Alpha build appears to bring much of the game's features to a mobile player. At certain times when the action got hot and heavy, there was a drop off in responsiveness. At times, the UI could have used a bump up in size. Still, it is a a good start and considering the number of WoW players spending time in a dark room at home, getting them out in the sunlight and inhabiting stores could actually provide a big pop to the economy.

Nice, but I don't play those games. Just wait until the upcoming Samsung and Snapdragon processors come out, the ones that promise PS3 and X-Box 360 like graphics. I'm sure that people will figure out some way of making the full version work on Android phones by then.

I don't think it's good enough for PvP though, you will just die before even have a chance to turn around and run

Even if you aren't into WoW, you're got to find this pretty cool.

This proves that using Remote Desktop with a Droid is now possible.
Thus we can now use your pc's to stream many different applications...
Developers just need to design a comfortable interface.
