End update.

Any Angry Birds fans out there? Today marks the long awaited release of the popular Android game Angry Birds from Rovio for the low, low price of $0. Yeah, that’s right, free. Of course, the free version of the app will be ad supported, but a paid replica sans the ads will be out before too long. According to an e-mail from Rovio, you can head on over to GetJar and grab the full version of the game right now, or wait out the release into Motorola SHOP4APPS, and the Android market. Let’s be honest here, with Fruit Ninja, Abduction, Jewels, and now Angry Birds all available for Android, nothing is ever going to get done. Check out the full PR from Rovio below, and let us know what you think in the comments.

*As of writing this, GetJar is experiencing problems and no one is able to access the Angry Birds page. Keep trying though guys, it’ll work eventually!

Angry Birds available for Android
IT’S HERE. AND IT’S FREE. After an extended period of beta testing, Rovio is proud to present Angry Birds for the Android platform. First of all, we’d like to thank you for your patience.
Why is Angry Birds free on Android? We want to make Angry Birds available for as many people as possible. Previously, many people were experiencing problems in finding Angry Birds on Android Market, but now everybody can download the game on their device.
Angry Birds will run on second generation Android devices and upwards, with Android platform 1.6 or later. Your device needs to support OpenGL ES 2.0. QVGA display resolution is not supported currently, but we will add support for QVGA devices soon.
Angry Birds Android features mobile advertising. A future update will include the option to purchase and opt out of advertisements.
To get the game now, you can download Angry Birds on your device for free exclusively from GetJar (http://www.getjar.com/angry-birds). It will soon be available on the Android Market and Motorola SHOP4APPS, free of charge as well.
We have worked long and hard to ensure that Angry Birds gives the best possible experience on Android, and we believe we have reached our goal. We welcome our fans to see for themselves and have fun playing Angry Birds!
