It's been teased for sometime now, but it's now been revealed that the 10 year anniversary mobile edition of the epic Grand Theft Auto III shoots it's way onto selected Android handsets on Dec. 15.

It'll set you back a measly $4.99, way less than we paid for it 10 years ago but sadly, at launch at least, not everyone will be able to enjoy this masterpiece. 

Supported devices at launch are: 

  • Phones: HTC Rezound, LG Optimus 2X, Motorola Atrix 4G, Motorola Droid X2, Motorola Photon 4G, Samsung Galaxy R, T-Mobile G2X
  • Tablets: Acer Iconia, Asus EeePad Transformer, Dell Streak 7, LG Optimus Pad, Motorola Xoom, Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 and 10.1, Sony Tablet S, Toshiba Thrive

There are going to be a lot of disappointed people out there, not least anyone who's just bought or planning on buying a Samsung Galaxy Nexus. But, our guess is that more devices, especially the Nexus, won't be far behind. Meanwhile if you're fortunate enough to own one of these devices, salivate over the Android version screenshots after the break, and try to wait patiently for the next 9 days.

No ThunderBolt? You have got to be kidding me. That is 2 HTC phones in a row that I have been screwed with. First the Eris and not the ThunderBolt...

Glad I got my Rezound last week for a penny at the Amazon sale. This is going to look great in 720p

Planned on buying a Nexus, still will be. However will enjoy this on my Transformer for sure!

Tablets are easy- all the "real" tablets are supported, since they are all Tegra 2, have the same memory, same CPU, etc.

But their selection of phones is a bit strange. For example, Droid X2 but not Evo 3D? Not sure I understand what those initial phone releases have in common that would make them supported and not others.

Kind of disappointed it won't be on my EVO 3D...but when my Transformer is in my pack all day :D man this will bring back some classic memories!!

WTF no Bionic? You got to be kidding me, they have the Rezound, Photon, and the X2, but won't support the Bionic? That doesn't make sense...
