So, as we know, Windows Phone hasn’t quite got the same Angry Birds selection as iPhone or Android. Rovio chief marketing officer stated that Windows Phone was a “big undertaking” and that the “cost of supplying” it to the “smaller platforms” just didn’t add up.
There is, however, one version of Angry Birds for Windows Phone. It doesn’t quite have the same amount of levels as other platforms, but Windows Phone owners can at least play the rather excellent pig-squashing game. It’s available for 79p here, however there seems to be an issue with the new Nokia Lumia 610. Although we were made aware that 5% of Windows Marketplace apps wouldn’t work on Tango handsets, it wasn’t clear that one of the “big hitters” would be in that 5%. The Inquirer have tried installing Angry Birds on the Lumia 610 handset, which has 256MB and an 800MHZ single-core CPU. It wasn’t able to download the app and we’ve also heard that football game PES and even the Microsoft-owned Skype failed to work too.
A budget Windows Phone that won’t load Skype and Angry Birds? Methinks potential customers could be heading to a budget Android phone instead.
