Let’s just say they’re not pleased. Rovio Mobile, Finnish-based developer for the wildly popular, inhumanely-brilliant game Angry Birds for iPhone, and upcoming this week, Android, recently stated in a tweet that they are not committed to building a Windows Phone 7 version of the game. They are open to any relevant mobile OS, but Microsoft used their icon without permission, implying that Rovio would build the game for the Microsoft platform. Keep in mind that Windows Phone 7 launches tomorrow officially in the U.S, and that the stunt is part of let’s say for now, a marketing boost.

Update: After sending a statement to TechFlash Microsoft officially states: “It appears information was mistakenly posted to Microsoft’s website, and has been removed.” And the logo’s been removed. That’s all for now folks.
