Angry Birds is coming to Windows Phone 7

Rovio, the maker of Angry Birds has confirmed that the game is coming to Windows Phone 7 bound according to reports. This is a great news to WP7 users as the game is already available in most other platforms like iOS, Android, Maemo and Symbian.

“We’re working on it,” Rovio’s Peter Vesterbacka told Pocket-lint when asked if and when Angry Birds will be available on Windows Phone 7.

Some time back, Microsoft accidentally posted an image suggesting an Angry Birds Windows Phone 7 app was on the cards. Rovio originally said ”Microsoft put the Angry Birds icon on their site without our permission.” Microsoft responded to the tweet claiming the image was a mockup, not meant to go live and that the Angry Birds icon was included by mistake.

Looks like the mistake is soon gonna be a reality.

Rovio didn’t confirm an exact release date for the game. It might be because they are waiting for Microsoft’s Windows Phone “Mango” release in the second half of 2011. Mango will introduce improved multitasking and faster resume times for games like Angry Birds.
