Angry Birds will be on Windows Phone 7 and in 3D

By Hayley Tsukayama

Angry Birds, the super-addictive Android and Apple game from Rovio that seems to be taking over the world, will finally be available on the Windows Phone 7.

It's been a long slingshot ride for Microsoft and Rovio, after a small dust-up in November when an errant Angry Birds logo showed up on the Microsoft Web site without the game company's permission. Rovio then tweeted that it was not committed to do a version for the Microsoft platform, disappointing some fans and prompting others to take matters into their own hands.

Now, in an interview with Pocket-lint, a Web site dedicated to mobile news, Rovio developer Peter Vesterbacka said that there's no bad blood between the companies and that Rovio is working on bringing the game to the Windows Phone 7. He didn't give a release date but hinted that delays are mostly due to Microsoft, saying , "Let's just say, Microsoft has a lot of lawyers."

Vesterbacka also confirmed the company is working on a 3D version of the game, though he gave no details about a launch date or a platform.
