Windows Phone Users Will Get Angry Birds Space, Eventually

Windows Phone users who want to play Angry Birds Space will have to use their laptops or borrow a friend’s phone for now. However, the CEO of Rovio says the just-released game will eventually make its way to Microsoft’s phones.

“We are working towards getting Angry Birds Space to WP7,” he told Reuters, without giving a time frame.

This follows a similar pattern for the birds, which came to Windows Phone 7 last June, well after arriving on Android and the iPhone. Rovio launched the space-themed game on Thursday simultaneously for Android, iOS, Windows PCs and Macs. Chief Marketing Officer Peter Vesterbacka was quoted by Bloomberg this week as saying that the game might not come at all for Windows Phone, but Hed’s comments indicate that it will come at some point.

Microsoft recently announced it had just passed 70,000 applications in its Windows Phone Marketplace; however, it is still not on par with Android and iOS when it comes to getting its share of the latest hits.
