Angry Birds coming to Windows Phone 7

Rovio is also working on 3D version of popular game

Windows Phone 7 users looks set to be able to enjoy Angry Birds on their handsets after the game's developer Rovio confirmed it was planning a version for Microsoft's mobile platform

Peter Vesterbacka from the developer told Pocket-lint: "We're working on it".

The mobile phone, which has gained huge popularity among iPhone and Android users, involves simple physics coupled sheer luck and requires players to transport ticked-off birds to a pig fortress via a slingshot in a bid to retrieve stolen eggs.

Vesterbacka also revealed the developer is working on a 3D version of Angry Birds.

"We've built a lot of 3D games before, it's not like it's a lot of learning in order to recreate the technology with Angry Birds,"he said.

However, he would not reveal when the game would be made available and what platforms it would be available on.

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
