7 million happy downloads of Angry Birds on Android

Rovio, demented architect behind Angry Birds, has quietly revealed that its flagship title has been downloaded seven million times on Android platforms. The information comes courtesy of Rovio's Twitter account in response to a user noting "Not all Android games are free." Rovio responded, tweeting, "True, but the ones with more than 50K downloads are... We just hit 7M downloads on Android."

The free, ad-supported version of Angry Birds was released on Android in October. It went on to be downloaded over two million times in its first three days of availability.
