Angry Birds Space coming to Windows Phones “as soon as possible”
In April, it was rumored that Rovio's Angry Birds Space game would be coming to the Nokia Lumia line of phones first, and to other Windows Phones either later or never. If you own a non-Nokia Windows Phone, you're in luck: the app will be coming to all Windows Phones.
Nokia today sent out a press release detailing some of its partnerships with software developers. Obviously, one of those partnerships is with Rovio.
Rovio is building a dedicated design and development team to create games for Nokia Lumia smartphones and the wider Windows Phone ecosystem, with the goal of developing and publishing all future Rovio titles as soon as possible. Nokia and Rovio will partner to develop innovative new consumer products and content exclusively for Nokia Lumia smartphones, alongside cross platform multi-channel integrated marketing initiatives.
So, yes, there will be some Lumia-exclusive content coming from Rovio, but Angry Birds Space doesn't fall under that category. At least both companies are trying to keep fragmentation to a minimum while still making money, right?
EA is also a partner with Nokia, and their deal also extends to the entire Windows Phone ecosystem, too. There's a few other partners, as well, including Groupon, PayPal, and ESPN – Nokia's obviously trying to beef up Windows Phone's ecosystem so it's a more viable platform for consumers. I think the company's doing a good job already.
