For Rovio and Microsoft, let bygones be bygones.

Everyone thought that will be the end of the game’s possibilities on the WP7. However, we’re simply astounded to know from Rovio’s Peter Vesterbacka that they’re simply working on a WP7 franchise of the game.

The best seller app, Angry Birds, was seen on Windows Phone 7 Promotional image. But this occurrence was a big mistake. No wonder Rovio, the developer of the app, seems to be a little taken aback.

When technology enthusiasts caught a glimpse of the popular iPhone app, Angry Birds, on Windows Phone 7 promo, it seems that the game is coming to Microsoft’s smart phone. But the developers of the app posted a denial tweet regarding the platform. A representative sent a note to TechFlash admitting the mistake that was made.

“It appears information was mistakenly posted to Microsoft’s website, and has been removed,” the statement said.

Microsoft need the developers behind Angry Birds, particularly Rovio, in order to stay put with the league of Android and iPhone , but Rovio wasn’t happy about the news.

An application that you'll fall in love with. How about watching movie in your mobile devices? Great, isn't?. Verizon rolled out the FiOS for Android, BlackBerry and Nokia 6.5 phones. It is an application that allows you watch, download, rent and buy movies.

There’s no promise yet on a live TV enabled iPad app. But Verizon rolled out the FiOS. An on-demand app for Android, BlackBerry and Windows Mobile 6.5. What does it do? It will let you buy, rent and watch the so-called Flex View movies directly to your phone. But we’ve heard that the devices under this is quite limited as of the moment. The inclusion of Droid X, Droid 2, and Storm 2, is obvious but always take not that it will expand in due time. And it’s not just watching movies on your phone, you can also transfer them to your PC.

Mobile TV: On Screen Dimensions and Viewing Patterns

Written on August 12, 2010 by Aiken Lewis

After accumulating facts and figures on mobile screen dimensions and viewing patterns, MobiTV comes to this conclusion: bigger is better.

The mobile tv operator studied usage patterns while FIFA was happening in South Africa. It found out that users viewing through larger devices watched the World Cup much longer than those with smaller screens. Its findings also included the discrepancy between the numbers of views done on the iPhone and Android mobile.

Here are the results for soccer mobile views, as reported by MobiTV: 5-inch phone users stay tuned for an average of 118.2 minutes, 4-inch screens had their users tuned in for an average of 102.2 minutes, and those who watched with 3- and 2-inch handsets timed 67.4 minutes and 61.1 minutes, respectively.

And here is the rundown for mobile tv usage on various mobile platforms: iPhone users recorded 77.8 minutes on average, which is relatively higher than Blackberry users’ average of 65.4 minutes and Windows Mobile users’ 62.7 minutes–but remarkably less than Android users, who were glued to their screens for an average of 125.7 minutes.

We know that Android has more users now than iPhone, and if this study is to be factored in to mobile TV’s further developments, then the future will have more Android users tuned in to mobile TV shows longer than everybody else.
