Angry Birds unofficially ported to run on Series 40 devices

Angry Birds unofficially ported to run on Series 40 devices
Angry Birds has become truly a household name - it’s played and loved by folks of all ages and it’s probably the most addictive game in the last year or so. Up until recently, if you had a mobile device, it must have been a smartphone for you to play Angry Birds. But Nokia has recently changed that by porting Angry Birds to its newly released super powerful Nokia Asha series of devices which while technically are still dumbphones approach closely smartphones in terms of functionality and hardware guts. 

Initially, we thought Angry Birds is reserved for the Asha handsets only, but turns out all Nokia phones running on Series 40 can handle the game. A crafty user stumbled upon an Angry Birds ROM and extracted the 1.8MB .jar file required to install the game, and ran it on a Nokia X3-02. Reportedly it all works good, so if you have a relatively contemporary Series 40 phone it might be worth giving it a try.

You’d need some experience with installing software on Series 40 and we wouldn’t recommend this to novice users. For the rest, hit the link below to get the file and let us know how it works on your device in the comments below!

Sure, somebody wants phone that have more features that one can use from time to time... C3-01 (680MHz processor) - works great. And now please extract shazam ;-)

Just installed it on my X2-03. Works fine, but the physics isn't as good as the higher smartphones. But still, IT'S FREE THANKS
