Angry Birds is an extremely popular game for the iPhone and WebOS. The developers, Rovio, has said that an Android version is coming, and they recently put up information about signing up for a beta. The beta would be limited to people who signed up, and a real version would come later.
That's now changed for the better. The company stated in a blog post that response to the beta sign up was so overwhelming that they decided to make the beta available to everyone directly through the Android Market. The post says that the game will run on "second generation Android devices and upward," so it's not clear exactly what the hardware requirements will be.
The company didn't say whether the beta would cost or not, but it's safe to assume that once the full version is released, it won't be free. The iPhone version costs 99 cents, and the WebOS version costs $1.99, so it's likely that the Android version will be priced similarly.
