Ad-free versions of original Angry Birds, Angry Birds Seasons
will be available on Amazon, too

Angry Birds publisher Rovio this morning announced that the upcoming Angry Birds Rio will launch on Android exclusively in the
upcoming Amazon App Store

. That's a huge coup for Amazon, which has had many rolling their eyes at the prospect of another app store, even one with the weight of a company like Amazon behind it.

The announcement also signals a switch from Get Jar, which
initially had the exclusive

on the original version of Angry Birds but
couldn't cope with the launch traffic


More good news: Android will be getting ad-free versions of the original versions of Angry Birds and Angry Birds Seasons, which also will be exclusively in the Amazon App Store.

No specific dates were mentioned, but recall that Angry Birds Rio originally
was said to be coming in March 2011

. So if everything's still on schedule, we could see it -- and the Amazon App Store -- light up in the next couple of weeks. [
