Original Angry Birds with 15 new levels available free from iOS App Store

Rovio has made its Angry Birds game for iPhone and iPad free for the first time

Rovio has made its popular Angry Birds game free for the first time, with the original iOS versions for iPhone and iPad now available to download for no cost from Apple's App Store.

The full game, which is the number one app of all time, has been made free as part of Apple's "App of the Week" promotion, in a move that represents the first time iOS users have been able to get their hands on the full version of the app since it launched in 2009 on iPhone and 2010 on iPad.

Despite being free to download, there are still in-app purchases for extra items and power-ups.

In addition to the price drop, Rovio has also added 15 new levels for the 'Bad Piggies' episode of the game.

Rovio's decision to offer the original Angry Birds for free has shot the game up into the top spot in the Top Free Apps chart for both iPad and iPhone.

Free sampler versions of Rovio's Angry Birds apps have been offered since January 2011, but never before have the full versions been free on iOS. On Android, the app has long been free, but it contains in-app ads.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
