Angry Birds RIO gets an update next week

Rovio has reported on their Facebook page that Angry Birds RIO is getting an update this week. The update, whatever comes after "Jungle Escape," will unlock some sweet new features including "marmoset mauling action" and it'll have many "juicy secrets" to discover. The update is being released a little later than expected, much to the chagrin of gamers who have been chomping at the bit and complaining about it's slipped release date. But they can rejoice that it will be followed by three more chapters of the Angry Birds Rio game to be released on or about July, October, and November of 2011.

Droid Incredible blowing out for a Penny at Amazon

Amazon is blowing out their inventory of HTC Droid Incredible phones for .01 with a two year deal. The sale is obviously to make some room since, as we reported today, the Droid Incredible 2 will be hitting the portal on Thursday. Now sure, users looking for a new phone may not mind laying out $199 for the latest Incredible 2. But considering it's essentially using the same processor and comes with a $25 app credit from Amazon, how can you complain?

Amazon promotes Android with app money

Amazon is joining forces with Verizon to offer $25 to spend in the Amazon App Store for Android with the purchase of a Verizon Android Device. The promotion begins tomorrow and will run all week. The offer is valid only on Verizon phones including the HTC Thunderbolt, which Amazon recently dropped to $129.99 with a two year deal. The promotion will certainly drive traffic to it's new AppStore but will also give a boost to Amazon's Wireless portal and the Verizon 4G phone which has been cut in price more than once.

Android App Downloads pass 3 Billion

In it's first quarter 2011 earnings call, Google let it be known that over three billion apps have been downloaded from the Android Market since it opened. The tally reflects a 50% increase in Android app downloads since the last quarter of 2010. Google didn't go into details over what apps had been downloaded multiple times, meaning that the tally could be reflecting a percentage of apps that have been re-downloaded to replace and app that had been deleted. But even with that possibility, it's still an impressive tall.

Amazon clears the air on their AppStore Developer Agreement

There seems to have been a bit of confusion over details in the Amazon AppStore Developer Agreement. There was apparently two different versions, one in PDF and one in text, and the plaint text version was an old version from before last November. Amazon had altered the ADA then, to reflect a definition of list price in the store. That likely means the some lazy intern forgot the post the new text file and confusion reigned. It's now been fixed.
