Helsinki-based software developer Rovio was glad to announce that the Android version of the immensely popular Angry Birds game has finally graduated out of Beta and is now available free of charge – cough! ad-supported – for all of you who have mobile devices powered by Android 1.6 or later. Rovio explained that for the time being Angry Birds for Android is ad-supported, but in the future it will roll out an update and will allow users to purchase the full version and thus get rid of the ads.

“It's finally live! Angry Birds has finally been released for the Android platform. You can download the game from GetJar, Android Market or Motorola SHOP4APPS. The game includes 150 levels of fantastic pig-smashing fun!” announced Rovio in a blog post.

If you are not familiar with the Angry Birds game, let me shed some light on the subject. Angry Birds is a puzzle video game created by Helsinki-based software developer Rovio. In the game some nasty, evil pigs stole the birds’ eggs; so the flock of birds sets out to retrieve the eggs. Since the pigs are hiding out in structures made from various materials, the birds have to damage the structure and then take out the pigs.

What you basically do is launch birds at various structures, and try to directly or indirectly take out the pigs. Directly by hitting a pig, or indirectly by damaging the structure which falls down on a pig.

The game has been available to iPhone users for quite some time now. Back in August the Angry Birds game landed on webOS-powered Palm Pre or Pre Plus devices, and now it has landed on the Google-developed Android operating system.

Other applications have landed on the Android OS this month as well – Skype for Android (which only works on Android 2.1 or later), the Wolfram Alpha for Android app (which gives you access to the powerful Wolfram Alpha computational knowledge engine), the Yahoo! Finance for Android app, and the Firefox 4 Beta for Android (and Maemo) app.
