'Pokémon Go' rolls out on Android and iOS (update)
With all the news surrounding Pokémon Go's beta test and wearable, you'd be forgiven for thinking the full game was already out. Until recently, it wasn't, but that's changing if you live in the United States and have an Android device, as spotted by 9to5 Google. Rocking a handset designed in Cupertino? Well, only iPhone owners in Australia have access at the moment so a measure of patience is in order.

The game that brings Pokémon collecting into the real world via developer Niantic Labs' augmented reality and GPS tech has been gestating for quite a bit. The intent, Niantic CEO John Hanke told us back in June, is to make you feel like you're venturing out into the world and capturing the pocket monsters for yourself. "You can live the story of being a Pokemon trainer," he said. Now it's time to discover how quickly can you catch 'em all.

Update (7/6): Pokémon Go is now available on Android and iOS in the US.
