I still have absolutely no idea what the heck is Angry Birds or why this game is so popular. But you people keep talking about it and it’s one of the biggest games on that other platform, so I have to believe that people want to know about it. So, here it is once again: Angry Birds is in the Android Market.

You may experience some problems attempting to download Angry Birds Lite depending on your phone version. The app requires Android 2.x so anything pre 2.0 is out of luck. I’m unable to get it to appear on my Froyo-running EVO, but it comes up on the Éclair-running Charm I’m testing. I’m sure that this is a debut hiccup of the developers trying to make the switch to the Android distribution method. This is just a beta after all.

So download the app and see what all the fuss is about. That’s what I’ll be doing shortly.
