Peter Vesterbacka is the known as the “Mighty Eagle” at Rovio, the company behind the wildly popular Angry Birds. Rovio has confirmed Angry Birds is coming to WP7, but we were curious to hear Versterbacka’s thoughts on the mobile landscape when asked how he viewed the various mobile operating systems.
Besides Apple and Google, it will be interesting to see how long it will take for Nokia to get their act together. MeeGo is clearly the future there, remains to be seen how big and how soon. HP-Palm webOS is a really cool OS and has been a pleasure developing for that one, but the volume is irrelevant for the time being. Everything else is more or less “interesting” right now, ie no real business to be had, at least not yet.”
I guess WP7 gets lumped into the interesting category, despite having over 5,000 applications in the Markeplace in less than 2 months. It could be worse, Versterbacka had some choice words for Google’s Android Market saying, “And paid content just doesn’t work on Android.” That can’t be good for developers.
