Angry Birds iPad caseYou would figure the place where gamers could get their Angry Birds fix on the cheap would be most ideal, but nay. It looks like players just can't get enough of that extra screen space. According to a poll Rovio held for its 11.7 million Facebook fans, the most ideal device for playing Angry Birds is the iPad.

That said, it's surprising more tablets didn't make the list, but equally impressive that the Kindle Fire, which has been on the market for less than two months, managed to place.
