Surely Microsoft and Nokia have shot themselves in the foot badly here? The first question many kids ask when getting their first phone is "Does it play Angry Birds?". And if it doesn't, they'll get an iOS or Android phone and are likely to stick with that platform in the future.

Microsoft/Nokia should have been paying Rovio whatever it took to make sure the Windows Phone platform was also supported by Angry Birds Space. They'll surely regret not doing so.

Surely Angry Birds is a passing phase. The big question is: what will be the replacement fad?

Angry Birds has been the most popular smartphone game by far pretty much since its initial release 2 years ago, and a new version (Space) has just been released to critical acclaim. A high-end phone that is not capable of playing that game is going to have a very hard time in the teenage marketplace. It could even be enough to destroy Microsoft's (and, by proxy, Nokia's) presence in the smartphone market.

It's also worth noting that Rovio said in October 2010 said it had "not committed" to bringing the original Angry Birds game to Windows Phone. About eight months later, Rovio's feathered bombers landed on Windows Phone.

And if it's what the customers want, then they'll go for the phone with angry fecking birds :P
Food, shelter; both are basic necessities of life.
If you call out for cheaper food, you are a saint.
If you call out for cheaper shelter, you are ostracised, ridiculed, even your partners and family feel slightly ashamed of you.

in other news.. Angry Birds Space is coming to wp7
http://crave.cnet.co...phone-50007438/
I have bought a newish (5 years) house in November 2006. I talked the vendor down 30% off peak 2004 price am am paying less than the 2002 price. I feel prices will continue to drop down to the 2001 price but saving for 5 years hopefully means i wont be stung. The price i am paying isn't much above the price the vendor paid for the place when it was new in 2000. However some idiot is trying to flog an identical house on my road for 55k above the price i paid, one month later!?!?! The housing market is frothy, no-one ever knows what the value of a house is, the value is what someone is willing to pay, make sure you pay alot less than the asking price.

Free to collect, like ebay but you dont pay, you just have to collect

QUOTE (sledgehead)If you make a living from something, you are a professional something: it is your profession. You could bake dog turds and flog them as ornaments. If that's how you make your living, you ARE a professional dog-turd baker. Period

Angry Birds is ancient history - like May of last year or something. It's all about Temple Run these days. *
