Angry Birds Rio Preloaded on LG Optimus Smartphones
LG Electronics has pulled of a bit of a coop for their fans of their Optimus smartphone range and have announced they now have an agreement with Rovio Mobile and Fox Digital Entertainment to preload Angry Birds Rio on said smartphones.
The CEO of Rovio Mobile, Mikeal Hed said, “We’re thrilled to expose the millions of LG customers across the world to the fun and exciting world of Angry Birds Rio. With more than 20 million downloads to date, Angry Birds Rio’s launch has been our most successful ever, and by pre-loading the game on high-performance LG Android smartphones worldwide, we look forward to even more success in the future.”
While the VP of Business Strategy at LG Electronics’ Mobile Communications Company, Yong-seok Jang says, “We’re excited to bring one of the most successful mobile games to our customers. Angry Birds Rio will help showcase the power, smoothness and speed of LG’s Optimus series of Android smartphones to our customers.”
The first Optimus smartphone to come with Angry Birds Rio preloaded will be the Canadian version of the LG Optimus 2X, and the mobile game will be available on the LG Optimus range of smartphones beginning in Q2 of 2011.
So does the addition of Angry Birds Rio embedded on LG Optimus smartphones sway you one way or the other when it comes to considering purchasing an Optimus handset?
