Angry Birds now available for QVGA Android phones, including X10 Mini

Following on from the release of the full version of Angry Birds, Rovio have followed the release up with an update for the game. While the beta version of Angry Birds worked fine on the Xperia X10, the full version did not work at all on the Xperia X10, if you had 1.6 any way. Since updating the Xperia X10 to Android 2.1, Angry Birds has worked fine for myself and others. However the X10 Mini and Mini Pro were left out of the Angry Birds camp, as the game did not support QVGA devices.

The promised update has now been released though and brings support for handsets with QVGA screens, such as the X10 Mini, Mini Pro and Xperia X8. It appears to be slightly buggy at the moment though and perhaps wasn’t quite ready to be released to the public. If you can persevere through this though, the handset is capable of playing Angry Birds. There hasn’t been any word on whether this fixes the issues for X10 owners running Android 1.6 though and as I’ve updated to 2.1 here I’m not able to check. For those still with Android 1.6, let us know in the comments if this update also fixes the issues on the Xperia X10. The update also adds an extra 45 levels to the game, so even if it’s working for you, it’s definitely worth updating.
