A few months ago, Blizzard released the iPhone version of the Mobile Authenticator. Today, Blizzard has announced the availability of the Android version of the Mobile Authenticator to offer an extra security layer for your account and in-game assets to those who use these type of mobile devices. Blackberry and very likely the iPad are among the device line up to be targeted at a later time.
