    Chillingo has been publishing some of the iPhone’s and iPad’s biggest, mega-hit applications and they’re finally looking to bring some of that good ‘ol fun to the Android Market. Chillingo Co-General Manager Chris Byatte said in a statement,

    “Android’s install base is steadily rising and we are working with our talented indie developers to bring fun, entertaining titles to this expanding platform,”

    With new Android devices popping up every other day, you’re darn right we’re expanding. Chillingo currently has a few Android titles in the Market like Spider Jack, Office Gamebox and plans to bring another 5 in the coming weeks. You can look forward to future Chillingo titles like My Vampire Boyfriend with more games that include:

    ROLL IN THE HOLE

    CONTRE JOUR

    LITTLE LOST CHICK

    PARKING MANIA

    Chillingo was recently acquired by Electronic Arts EA back in 2010 and now works inside EA Mobile. This new Android push may have a little something to do with EA’s attempts at tapping the booming mobile gaming market.

    I am just Glad the Androids are getting more visually appealing games. When I got my D1 there wasn't many out there.

    Interesting. I'm not a big fan of my IPad, but do find myself interested in getting an Android tablet at some point. I just think smartphones need widgets, and tablets even more so. But I'm holding out for the 3-in-1 device that will inevitably come - perhaps we see one at CES this coming January.

    Yeah I remember seeing that now. Will be interested to see when it launches. I'm sure there wil be an optional keyboard available.
