Angry Birds Space to arrive on Windows Phone, Nokia getting some exclusive apps for Lumias

Angry Birds Space to arrive on Windows Phone, Nokia getting some exclusive apps for Lumias
Angry Birds Space has broken some download records since its initial launch, but the epic battle of birds and pigs in space landed only on iOS and Android, and not Windows Phone. Rovio now plans to change that and port the title to Microsoft's platform, which is good news for the platform that is struggling to gain traction among users. PayPal will also bring a new app to the platform as well as TIME Magazine.

On the other hand, there is Nokia, really trying to differentiate itself in the Windows Phone world with the Lumia series, and now it adds a couple of exclusive titles to the mix hoping to further boost its sales.   

In June, Nokia Lumias are getting PGA Tour exclusively, GroupOn (exclusive for 6 months) and some Angry Birds-themed content, but we don't know exactly what yet.

Also, the existing ESPN app will add tennis and NASCAR scores, as well as news from the 2012 Olympics.

thank god lol this is much needed for me anyway. with the lumia exclusive promise apps im loving my windows phone even more. With Verious adding windows phone to its developers list this should help port over alot more titles from ios and android. the future is looking good.

What about MeeGo Nokia. I don't think Rovio or other developers know how well the N9 sold, more than all Lumias combined according to some reports. Elop is being so silent on N9 sales figures its apalling IMO. If by the end of the year and their Windows Phone strategy fails, I wonder what will be their next move.

Mr. Bragzter, is nokia forcing you to buy windows phone? I saw an N9 on amazon last night, go ahead and buy it. If you and other people don't like what nokia is doing, don't buy their products, simple. Instead of constantly whining over things that will never change. If you really like nokia, you would know that the path that they are on right now is the best and instead of saying things that you have little or no knowledge about, just shut up and see how things turn out. I find such comments on every tech site and it annoys me.Time and time again, people try to explain why meego is a good thing but a company that is cash strapped can't afford to develop a platform on it's own. Maybe once windows phone sales are good enough and nokia is back on it's two feet, they can then revive it.

I currently have an N9, I and every owner knows how great a device it is, both in terms of design and software. The Lumia 800/900 is Windows Phone in the N9 shell. If the 800 and N9 are beside each other while off you won't know the difference. Now, i am not mad at Nokia going with Windows Phone, I just don't feel relying 100% is the best move. Samsung has been very successful with Android but, they have Windows Phones, Bada and now Tizen. They have back ups just in case something goes horribly wrong with Android. Nokia has a great platform in MeeGo, they should be taking advantage of it. They should have released it worldwide and make a killing. It outsold their Lumia despite its limited availability, if that doesn't say something I don't know what will.

Well said ron1niro, I like Meego too but we all know that it doesn't have the support that is needed and Nokia does not have that much cash to back it up. I just want to see what Nokia is going to do with WP8, I'm very excited.
