Angry Birds fans can still play after selling used phones and updating to HTC Hero
10 November 2010 — 11:57 AM
Fans of the popular game Angry Birds now have the option of selling used phones and upgrading to a model from the HTC Hero range, after it was confirmed the app will run on the devices.
Flora Graham, writing for CNET UK, says the "feather-flinging fun" is now open to those with the product for free, despite some suggestions it was not compatible with the mobile.
However, an update by developers means Angry Birds can now be enjoyed by users of another phone portfolio.
They join those with an iPhone, Palm or Nokia device, all of which are capable of operating the game.
Those desperate to get involved in arguably the biggest title of the mobile world currently may find selling a used phone and putting the cash towards one of the right models is perhaps the best way.
Luke Westaway, also writing for CNET UK, recently nominated Angry Birds as one of the top ten games available to mobile customers.
Jon Butler, creative brand manager at Envirofone, says: "Angry Birds fans will be relieved! If you'd been put off upgrading before, now's the time. Especially as you can get cool apps like this on a variety of handsets. You could even trade-in your old phone for cash."
