    Surprised no one has put this up yet but Angry Birds is out now for free. You can get it here (ignore it saying Demo on the site or file download, it IS the full version)

    Download Angry Birds for Mobile

    This is not illegal, Rovio have made it available for free until they get enough downloads. Then the ad-free PAID version will be released

    On my n96 used to mostly download cracked/free apps apart from the very rare one that was exceptional.

    Since having my Desire I always pay for the proper version as it does not cost that much and if the dev is actively supporting the community then I believe the money will help him evolve the product.

    I love this game so will be paying for it...

    Thanks for the link tho bud.

    It's free because Rovio have made it available for free. It's supported by ads at the moment and the paid, ad-free version will be out once downloads go over a certain number...go on their Twitter feed if you don't believe me

    @RovioMobile

    Like I'd post illegal links, tut...

    Don't worry too much if it doesn't download. Getjar only have 24 hours exclusivity, after that, according to CNet, it will be on the Android Market. PS I got to 98% download before it failed!!

    If you download from Getjar, what happens about updates? Will it still pick them up automatically? Never used anything but the Android market so far.

    Yep, GetJar has a 24hrs exclusive on it, then it'll be on the Market. Just get it from the upload link a few posts up and install using your favourite file manager :D

    Or wait until tomorrow to get it from the Market

    getjar are having issues with volume of traffic....SHOCK HORROR!! LOL!

    I got the download when it was first tweeted. For those who don't know, you need to do a couple of things to get it to install:

    (1) Download the file - it will save on your SD card in SD/Download folder.

    (2) Menu > Settings > Applications > tick Unknown Sources

    (3) Using a file manager like Astro, find the file "AngryBirds_1.3.5" in the Download folder and click it

    (4) Select Install and it will install on the SD card and will appear in the App list

    (5) Menu > Settings > Applications > UNtick Unknown sources again.
