    Last week Rovio released a beta version of their world wide popular game Angry Birds on Android (Grab the Angry Birds LauncherPro icons). Apart from a few issues regarding different handsets, the release was a great success. The highly addictive game runs very smoothly, and the 15 levels included were extremely enjoyable with a couple of them being quite challenging.

    If like me, you have obtained three stars on all of the 15 levels you will be thinking to yourself

    Some Eris users couldn't get it to work. Dunno what screen the Eris has but WVGA isn't supported yet.

    I wasn't able to even see the app on the market on my girlfriend's Eris. Anyone else having that issue?

    Find the .apk for it. Just install it using Astro.

    Then, you're SOL. I'm running it on both an iOS device and Droid without issue. Maybe a future release will fix compatibility issues. They have it running on a Hero, although with some lag.

    The Eris is WVGA. Which is probably why some people are reporting issues with it. I can't get it to start on my phone either.

    I'm running it on xtrROM 4.2 with no problem. When I tried it on xtrROM 4.5 it was lagging a bit.

    WVGA is 'Wide' VGA 800x480.
    The Eris is HVGA or 'Half' VGA 480x320.

    Angry birds works just fine on my Eris.

    According to Rovio's website "Angry Birds Lite Beta will run on second generation Android devices and upwards."

    The Eris is considered a first generation android device due to the lower end specs. So if you are lucky enough to get it to work good for you! :) Otherwise you might be SOL (keep in mind though it is still in beta and you never know what might happen).

    Found it in the marketplace, downloaded/installed uneventfully, runs fine. Very addictive! (I first tried downloading the .apk and using a file manager to install; kept getting the "out of space" error. Then went to the marketplace on spec, and there it was.)

    What marketplace did you find it in? What is the "marketplace on spec" you mention?

    Thanks!

    The Android Marketplace. Just looked again tonight - searched for "angry bird" and there it was.

    "Went to the marketplace on spec" just means I didn't really expect to find it, went there (the Android Marketplace again) on the chance that it would be there.

    If you can't get it to install on your Eris, try another ROM. I couldn't get it to work on mine, then I changed ROM's the other day. Yesterday I decided to just try again and it worked. Played it for like three hours straight.

    Addictive little bugger isn't it! :)

    It does definitely play better on some ROMs than on others. I personally haven't hit one that it doesn't play on, but I have no problem believing that there are some.

    It sure is addictive. Wish the full version was available somewhere, could probably waste a whole week of my life with it.
