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 ‘when, oh when will the full version come out!?’. Well at TalkAndroid.com we have the answer!

Rovio have been kind enough to answer a few of our questions here at TalkAndroid.com, and we can confirm that the full version is not that far away.

Read what Rovio had to say below:

TA.com : What can you tell us about the future of Angry Birds on Android?

Rovio : We are currently working hard to ensure that Angry Birds on Android will offer best game experience for as many people as possible. The expected release date is within 2-3 weeks.

TA.com : We have noticed that the Beta only got released to a certain number of devices. For example, we did not see it on the HTC Wildfire or Hero, but we did see it on the HTC Desire. I assume that this was simply because of the screen resolutions. Do Rovio plan to support a wider range of Android devices in future?

Rovio : At the moment, the game does not support QVGA displays, which is what the Wildfire has. We’re looking into trying to add support for QVGA devices. The game runs on the Hero, but there is a significant lag. We will try to solve any issues for as many devices as possible, before releasing the full version.

TA.com : Is there any more information you would like to tell as at the moment?

Rovio : There will be more details very soon, as we prepare to announce the full game on Android.

Well, there you have it people. Only a couple more weeks until we get see the full version of Angry Birds come to Android. It was also very interesting to hear about the support for certain screen types. Hopefully Rovio will be able to support all screens in the future though.
