    On my phone HTC Desire - when i go to market, games, arcade & action, then free games. I cannot find Angry birds

    My coworker, (new samsung phone from US cell) goes the exact same path in his market, it shows angry birds as the top selection.


    Why would the market show different things for differnet phones? I thought the market was the same for everyone?

    Your carrier could block some market apps or your phone might not be able to run the app, but in this case, it's probably just market gremlins. You could try clearing the cache from the market or the app data.

    It's odd. Im using the same carrier as my coworkers. I also cleared my cache and I still have the same trouble

    Device differences, as simple as that.

    So I can have the same carrier as someone, but because I have a different andriod phone I simply may never see some apps in the market? That just seems odd.
