Angry Birds to be preloaded on LG Optimus smartphones
According to LG's UK blog, Angry Birds developer Rovio and LG have reached an agreement on a deal that allows the Korean cell phone manufacturer to preload the Rio version of the popular game on the LG Optimus series. The game includes characters from the 20th Century Fox film Rio.

You will find Angry Birds Rio preloaded on the phones starting sometime this quarter. In Angry Birds Rio, the original feathered stars are birdnapped and taken to the city of Rio from where they escape.

Once free, the Angry Birds set off to find thier pals, Jewel and Blu. The latter two are rare Macaws and are the stars of the movie Rio, still at a theater near you.

The Angry Birds? They will soon be getting flinged into the air on a LG Optimus smartphone near you.

Why is this "good" news? The app is free for anyone to download from the market. Not a big deal.

Exactly!! Why waste valuable memory pre-loading an app that cannot be removed when it is free on the Android Market and can be installed/re-installed whenever the person wants?

lol, if you are running out of app memory on a new dual core phone, you either dont realize you can save them to the memory card now.. have downloaded nearly the entire market.. or need to delete some porn.

I went and saw Rio in 3D and found it kind of funny that there are some birds in a part of the movie that are just like the birds off Angry Birds.

wow, they saved us 30 seconds by downloading it for us. yay! now i can't uninstall it if i want to

i hope this isn't the only seller for the phone. It's free in the market and takes about 5 seconds to download on a 4G network. I guess since LG hasn't introduced any high-end android devices to date this is what they are left with--a pre-installed Angry Birds.

"I guess since LG hasn't introduced any high-end android devices to date,* this is what they are left with--a pre-installed Angry Birds." Are you like retarded or something, they Created the first 3D Tablet (LG Slate) and the first Dual core phone the LG G2X. What wack _ss phone do you own??? And if you are referring to the Optimus series only then include that you are referring to that series.

Do you understand English??? According to your grammar you forgot to capitalize the first letters in the words that are at the begging of each sentence. I know you tried your best to make no mistake on your poor grammar by adding periods at each sentence, and B.T.W. No ones talking about Verizon, this is Mostly an Angry birds LG Conversation. Wheres the F_ck is your common sense??? P.S. I know the LG slate is a Tablet, but guess what idiot I'm talking about devices not phones.

LG Slate is on T-Mobile BTW and its who* cares * about*. Also, We dont care what you think. What i said was a statement, but what you said is an insult and the world doesn't have time to deal with pathetic things you say.
