Angry Birds gains top iPhone game status with 6.5 million sales
Plus another 11 million free downloads

US manager Peter Vesterback's remark to GamesBeat's Dean Takahashi that "Our goal is to get to 100 million paid downloads," seems a little ambitious though.

Perhaps more significant however will be the impact of the expected sequel.
