LG Optimus handsets to come preinstalled with Angry Birds
LG has unveiled today that Angry Birds Rio will be preinstalled on it's upcoming range of phones, namely the Optimus 2X, Optimus Black and Optimus 3D.
“We’re excited to bring one of the most successful mobile games to our customers,” said Yong-seok Jang, Vice President of Business Strategy at the South Korean company. “Angry Birds Rio will help showcase the power, smoothness and speed of LG’s Optimus series of Android smartphones to our customers.”
If you've never heard of the phenomenally popular smartphone game, put simply it’s basic concept is pulling back a bird in a catapult and firing it at structures protecting green pigs. Sounds awful, plays like a dream.
Being honest, the announcement from LG is essentially a publicity stunt. With the game being free to download anyway from the Android market the only thing you are saving is time. Still, that’s an extra 10 minutes to play Angry Birds...
