    Steam Mobile is in Beta, confirmed features include Community (I assume Friend List/Chat and Forum) and Store Front.

    Currently it’s restricted to industry folks, such as news outlets.

    You can sign up for the Beta through the App itself, all you need to do is attempt to sign into your Steam Account in the App.

    Direct your phone's browser to http://store.steampowered.com/mobile and download the App from the web market.

    My phone is a T-Mobile G1/HTC Dream running Android 1.6 and can confirm it is not supported for this device (I figured, lol)
    Time for me to jump on that Galaxy S2 I've been drooling on!

    Good luck, my friends and God bless.

    What is that even suppose to mean? You are preaching to the wrong audience here, this is a forum of tech heads, we are all about betas... And most of us are all about Steam, now to have Steam at our finger tips while being out on the town. I just don't see the point in your post.

    ok now make retro/legacy games playable and I'll be happy. Cmon GTA 1 and 2 and plenty of others would run on the phone without issue.

    also counter-strike mobile anyone?

    Off Topic - It seems everyone wants to be part of the TPU news team nowadays. Thread titles are just screaming it.
    On topic - Awesome news :)

    Well has anyone gotten a beta invite yet ?
    I sure haven't and there appears to be no way to signup :confused:
    Therefor it makes the app pointless like my post for now anyway.

    You have to sign up through the app itself.

    Agreed, but that doesn't always work. For instance, I have some friends in Canada or the UK and to text them in a "conversation" would cost a fortune. Something like 15c per message, which would add up if you were not careful. And of course Skype or other various messengers are easy alternatives, but when your friends are usually on steam, playing games...this is certainly a lot better than having to VNC or RDP to your PC and say hi that way :p

    It has everything the steam desktop client has aside from voice chat and being able to play games its far from pointless.

    It also works on my kindle fire tho i cant screen cap that

    Awesome! Now if there's a sale ongoing and without a PC in hand or laptop, droid/ios enabled devices to the rescue!
