It seems Microsoft has managed to inadvertently ruffle a few feathers over at Rovio Mobile, the company responsible for the popular Angry Birds game. Microsoft's sin was posting a website indicating the game was one of those destined for the Windows Phone 7 platform.
"We have NOT comitted to doing a Windows Phone 7 version. Microsoft put the Angry Birds icon on their site without our permission," Rovio Mobile announced in a Twitter post (where else?).
Microsoft chalked the incident up to a simple mistake, saying that the website wasn't supposed to go live and that the Angry Birds icon shouldn't have been included.
Despite repeated tweets on the subject, Rovio Mobile appears to have calmed down and hasn't ruled out the Windows Phone 7 platform entirely.
"We didn't get mad, just wanted to set the record straight. And we haven't said we wouldn't do WP7," Rovio Mobile said in response to a user question.
