Blizzard to Discontinue Java-Based Mobile Authenticator

In case you haven't heard yet, Blizzard has announced that they are planning on discontinuing the Java-based version of their Mobile Authenticator. Before you start panicking, though, know that the version that's being discontinued is for older cell phones, not current smartphones.

If you're still using an older phone and want to buy the $1 version of the Java-based Mobile Authenticator, be sure to go to the Blizzard Mobile site before December 13th. The app will continue to function, but will no longer be available for download. After December 13th, you'll either have to get the physical Authenticator, or you'll have to have a smartphone to download the Mobile Authenticator via your smartphone's market app.

Also, the various ringtones and cell phone wallpapers on the Blizzard Mobile site will also be removed on that same day, but before you go scrounging up the change to buy them, note that Blizzard's blog post also mentions that they're looking to bring them back as free downloads in the future.
