Right now if you're a user of an Android phone, your only option is to use the built-in browser to play Mafia Wars (which is slow and clunky) or play by SMS. However, by the end of the month you will be able to get the full Mafia Wars experience in an application made for Android phones.

At LeWeb '10, Senior Vice President of Mobile at Zynga David Ko has announced that Mafia Wars will be coming to mobile this month. Currently, the only Zynga game available in the Android Market is Zynga Poker. In addition, Ko let it slip that FarmVille will also be coming to Android in the future as well. This is pretty big news, although we were pretty certain this was going to happen. Having confirmation is always a good thing though!

At this point, we do not have a release date for Mafia Wars on Android. We're looking forward to giving it a try when it happens though!
