Anyone looking to get their Angry Birds fix in the coming weeks with Angry Birds Rio won’t be able to do so in the Android Market. Instead, the destined to be incredibly popular Rio will see an exclusive launch in the Amazon Appstore.
According to the Amazon Appstore Developer Blog, Amazon plans on using the launch to draw in customers once their Appstore finally goes live. They’ve already launched a Twitter account and Facebook page — for “consumer-focused messaging” — to get the ball rolling, and developers are encouraged to submit their app as soon as possible for the imminent launch of the Appstore.
While Twitter accounts and Facebook pages are sure to help, nabbing the exclusive launch of the most popular game on Android is brilliant. Be on the lookout for the release of both Angry Birds Rio and the Amazon Appstore any time now.
