Nokia Lumia 610 does not run Angry Birds, insufficient RAM to blame

Last week, Skype for Windows Phone was made unavailable to Nokia Lumia 610 users due to insufficient RAM, and now we have Angry Birds, Tango, and PES2012 joining the list. More than 256MB of RAM are required...

A thing to consider is the resolution at which WP7 runs Angry Birds. While low end droids run at 240*320 or 200*400 WP has 480*800. That's literally 4 times the pixels to render.

A comparison can be properly drawn angry bird experience on The DELL XCD 35 which has a res screen and a low end proc.

Still it still appears that Rovio can optimize the game further. I also don't know if Rovio recompiled/rebuilt their game after MS set the XNA increased from 30 fps 60 fps. It still appears to stutter compared to high end droids or the ios.

I agree with this.

Rovio did it for Sense UI phones/Snapdragons for Android. I assume it can be done here too.
