If you have an Android-powered device and you want to get the Angry Birds Rio game, there’s only one thing you can do – go to amazon.com/angrybirds and purchase the game (actually it's free for a limited period). Nothing has changed since the 14th of March when Rovio Mobile announced that Angry Birds Rio for Android would be rolled out exclusively to the Amazon App Store.

“Amazon is thrilled to work with a leading developer like Rovio in offering our customers Angry Birds Rio for Android exclusively in the Amazon Appstore,” said at the time Aaron Rubenson, category leader for Amazon Appstore. “We think Angry Birds Rio is sure to be an instant customer favorite.”

But if you have an Android-powered device and you want to get Angry Birds Rio Free, the ad-supported version of the game, then you can forget about the Amazon Appstore. Rovio Mobile announced yesterday that the game has been released to the Android Market and that pretty soon it will be rolled out to GetJar as well.

“Angry Birds Rio is now available in Android Market and soon on GetJar,” announced Rovio Mobile. “The game is available as a free download, with advertising. The ad-free version is available exclusively in the Amazon Appstore, where you can download it for free for a limited time.”

In related Angry Birds news, the fourth and final video that promotes Microsoft Bing has been rolled out. Read more about this topic here.

In further related news, the first ever Angry Birds Finnish Championship ended; 19-year old Jonas Koivula won the competition. He won a Nokia N8 and a trip for two to Hollywood to visit Fox Studios and attend the launch of the Rio movie (on which the Angry Birds Rio game is based).

Speaking of the Rio movie, a second trailer has been released. You can check it out on YouTube here.
