Angry Birds Rio for Android to be an Amazon Appstore exclusive

If you're an Angry Birds fan and own and Android device, here's some news you'll want to file away for safe keeping. The upcoming sequel Angry Birds Rio won't be available from the Android Market. Rather, you'll have to download it from the Amazon Appstore.

That's a pretty major win for Amazon, considering how successful the Angry Birds franchise has been. If you're looking for a sure-fire way to attract customers to your new store, there's probably no better way to do it that with Rovio's follow-up effort.

As Mobiputing points out, Rovio's animated teaser for Rio announced a launch date of April 15th. If that still holds true, it's a pretty good bet that the Amazon Appstore for Android will be open then, too.
