Angry Birds Space For Android Released
All hail the Angry Birds. Creator of some of the most popular Android games of all time—including now-classics as Angry Birds, Angry Birds Seasons, and Angry Birds—Rio has released a new iteration where our feathery little friends take on the final frontier.

Of course, there’s a special little file called build.prop which can be altered to make it seem like users have a different phone than they really do. Hint hint.
