Posted by Tanmay | Posted in Software, Videos, Windows Phone 7 | Posted on 02-02-2011


Rovio, the company behind the highly popular game ‘Angry Birds’ has launched its game for almost all major Mobile platforms. There were rumors of Angry Birds for WP7 but till now they seem to be just that and there’s no Official word on when we’ll be able to blow up some pigs on our Windows Phone 7.

An Angry Birds clone titled Chicks and Vixen was just released on the Marketplace. The gameplay is very similar to Angry Birds with exception that instead of Birds and Pigs this game is about the feuds between Chicks and Vixens.

Also the Developer further adds that it took him only 1000$ to develop this game from scratch. He also says that its just a matter of a weeks time for Rovio to port this game over to Windows Phone 7 but they are delaying the release purely for economic reasons rather than technical.

So for now, enjoy Chicks and Vixen. Its pretty fun too and best of all – It’s Free!

Download it from the Marketplace now.

The HTC HD2 was launched more than a year back and is still receiving tremendous support from the Developer community. Windows Phone 7 for the HTC HD2 was launched just a couple of weeks back by the famed Dark Forces Team.

I’ve been personally using WP7 on my HD2 for 2 weeks now and I’ve to say that I’m really impressed. This comes from someone who’s vigorously used iOS and Android on a daily basis. Sure, WP7 lacks some features but it makes up for it in terms of User Experience and overall Speed of the OS.

I highly recommend anyone with a HTC HD2 to go ahead and Install Windows Phone 7.

To Install Windows Phone 7 on your HD2 make sure you have HSPL 2.08 or higher installed.

If you don’t have HSPL installed follow this post to Install HSPL on your HD2.

Stantum has been long working on a technology which provides Resistive screens to be MultiTouch as well as being highly Sensitive.

Engadget has done a Hands-On Video on a Tablet based on Stantum technology. Watch the Video after the break.
