BlizzCon is an annual convention held to celebrate the three major franchises (Warcraft, StarCraft, and Diablo) of Blizzard Entertainment. The next convention has been announced for October 21 to 22 and to help conference goers stay on top of all the events BlizzCon, in collabaration with NVIDIA, have launched the official BlizzCon 2011 Android App.

The app features:

  • A built-in calendar and planner that allows you to view the details of all the events taking place and add them to your personal calendar. The items in your itinerary can then be sorted by day, time, game series, and more.
  • The option to set alerts to notify you of any event on your calendar.
  • A complete zoomable map of BlizzCon.

It is quite obvious that this app is only going to be useful if you are actually planning on attending BlizzCon 2011. However with over 30,000 attendees expected this year, it is likely that some will have an Android phone and will want to get their hands on this virtual planner.

    Does anybody else find it telling that these two companies are teaming up on an Android app FOR a convention? I'm just theorizing, but this does hint at a possible announcement...possibly demonstrating a tablet that will play starcraft/diablo, or maybe a new franchise, or possibly they intend to really shock the world and bring WoW to a tablet (I seriously doubt this one for at least another year or two).

    Btw, Is there an equivalent iPhone app?

      I agree it does seem a little odd that these two companies would team up to do something like an Android app. Then again, it may just be a marketing ploy.

        You can already rig it up so you can play WoW on a tablet to a degree. I wouldn't go raiding with it but you can certainly do quests.

        Also Blizzard has other mobile apps for Android relating to WoW so I wouldn't be surprised if there is an announcement for WoW, Starcraft or Diablo 3 and Android in some fashion whether it's companion apps or more.

    Perhaps Nivdia will be announcing Tegra 3 with some hot new games to support it?
