    Rovio has really dropped the ball on their Angry Birds Android port

    It was announced several months ago that Angry Birds would be coming to the Droid, then a video was released about 2 months ago showing it fully functional running on a Droid.

    Yet their only response when asked when it would be released for the past 2 months has been 'soon'. I know nobody wants a product rushed out the door and full of bugs, but this is getting ridiculous. Instead of telling us 'soon', just give us a date, even if it's 3 months from now. They've had time to add an expansion pack for the iPhone version but still no Android port. I have a feeling as soon as it's released it will become the #1 selling paid app of all time in the Market in a short amount of time.

    Hopefully they get it released soon.

    Truth be told...

    It isn't silly at all, iOS to WebOS ports are very simple, the Obj-C code can be plugged right into the PDK and works very well, even with OpenGL code.

    iOS to Android is going to almost always be a complete re-write unless you don't care about performance.

    If you want to see a completely botched port, look at some of the early EA games that were ported to Android (Monopoly Here and Now is a shining example). The game runs properly, but the code execution is horrendously slow and it crushes the CPU.

    Don't forget the headaches involved in developing/QA across multiple GPU architectures.

    Good times...
