Today in Mobile

Bloomberg got a lot of attention this morning with this report that the latest installment of the hugely successful Angry Birds franchise won’t be available on Microsoft’s mobile operating system. The story was based on some comments from an executive at Rovio, which publishers the game, and many pundits took the news as a clear sign that the WP ecosystem is stalling. But Reuters actually picked up the phone and called Rovio to find out that the company really is making a WP version of Angry Birds Space, although no launch date has been announced. So maybe that ecosystem isn’t doing as poorly as some thought. And kudos to Reuters for demonstrating some professional journalism policies.
