I am so happy that Blizzard took the move to make sure to bring something like this to the masses. After experiencing the frustration of checking to see if the authenticators are in stock, this is a welcome change! I mean, just think of ALL the PEOPLE Blizzard is serving by releasing this phone application to the .00012% of people that actually own a $300 iPhone! Now I can be twice as frustrated that I STILL don't have protection from hackers.Seriously, why would you develop an application for one of the most hi-tech devices on the market today *before* releasing a generic application for the rest of the major brands simultaneously? Sorry for all the QQ, but my account was recently hacked and it just seems like Blizzard is going about this backwards.

There is no such thing as a "generic application for the rest of the major brands"; you need to get the app to run on a bunch of different devices which may have different processors/OSes, and then have each cell provider - not manufacturer - approve the device for use on their cell network. iPhone: standard platform, one organization to approve the app, 30 million customers. (Counting iPod touches, which can also run this.)A big reason why the iPhone has been successful is because it manages to create a software distribution process that doesn't cause your sanity to run out your ears.
