  1. The video is a must watch for game developers.

  2. Making toys like we make games. Of course working with partners and people much smarter and more experienced than we are in the toy business, so we are learning fast. And hope we come up with some cool new ways of doing things. Toys are just the beginning,

  3. Cat MacKinnon says:

    i wish they’d work on a version for Blackberry. Android and iPhones are the current tech trend, which is understandable since they’re both comparatively new compared to other smartphone platforms, but BB’s still hold one of the top slots worldwide as far as smartphone use. just because it’s been around for a while doesn’t mean it’s irrelevant. i’ve seen threads on pretty much every single Blackberry forum wondering when we’ll get Angry Birds, and it’s very safe to assume there are TONS of Blackberry users that would love this. i think if they went with a similar model to the Android version (free with ads, pay to remove ads), it would do very well. there are plenty of premium games for Blackberry that sell very well, and with RIM shifting to QNX starting with the Playbook, i think RIM is finally starting to really acknowledge that smartphones are used for much more than just business these days.

  4. Mathias Penz says:

    Vesterbacka ist right: Android sucks in Terms of Payment-Methods. Who is willing to give Creditcard Data to Google?

    Google should open payment methods for Android to carrier Billing, which is way more comfortable to customers, easy and secure.

  5. daragh says:

    when was the interview? seems months ago…

  6. hilzfuld says:

    Daraph, nope, why do you say that?

  7. will says:

    I actually didn’t know that the Android version was free, but I bet an ad supported full game of AB would be successful on iOS too, especially with kids who have a tighter iTunes allowance

  8. Bill says:

    To the guy who asked about Blackberry version:

    The game is touch centric. Blackberry has the absolute worst touchscreen technology in the world. Till they release a good touchscreen phone there won’t be any good games on it. You couldn’t possibly play Angry Birds with the touchpad or marble on a Blackberry. QNX and Playbook won’t save RIM. They are going down hard.

  9. Greg says:

    Nokia seem to have got left behind. My N97 Mini is a superb phone (I’m comparing my esperience with that of Colleagues with Windows and Android phones) just with an elderly OS.

    I see there is a version of Angry Birds for S3 – lots of us run s60v5 (the touchscreen os, in 5800s and the like) – will there ever be a version for us?

  10. Cube says:

    “Google should open payment methods for Android to carrier Billing, which is way more comfortable to customers, easy and secure.”

    Google have said that PayPal will be added as an option in the Marketplace, and leaks show that carrier billing may be an option in the future.

  11. Itamar says:

    I agree!

  12. birbeck says:

    Google Checkout is the second largest integrated payment solution for merchants trailing only behind PayPal. It is used by millions of people every day to purchase not just Android apps but products and services from millions of merchants and websites across the world. Your credit card data is most certainly secure.

    AT&T just launched the first carrier billing solution for Android a few days ago and others will follow shortly. I have already seen several orders come through for my Android apps from “AT&T Mobility”.
