Angry Birds Downloaded 7M Times; No WP7 Version in 2010

Rovio has announced some nice stats for its Angry Birds Android release. The much-loved and -played video game has reached 7 million downloads from the Android Market.

Rovio's Angry Birds is free on the Android Market, though it costs $0.99 in the App Store. When asked why it is free on Android, Rovio Tweeted, "because that is the google way;-)." By that, Rovio meant that the majority of apps on Android are free and ad-supported.

Meanwhile, the company also Tweeted the news about the milestone: "We just hit 7M downloads on Android."

At the same time, despite the fact you know that Microsoft would love to see Angry Birds on Windows Phone, it's not going to happen in 2010 (or at least, is highly unlikely). Also Tweeting a response, Rovio said: "never say never, but it's highly unlikely."

Would be interesting to see how much they get through the ads. Especially considering it's a popular game (as oppose to a download, test and delete after the first try) and there are many maps.

Also, on ads they get the full 100% not 70% right?

I absolutely agree, this game is all about addiction. I haven't played and enjoyed any other game like it, ever before.
