Officially, the popular Angry Birds game from mobile game publisher Rovio does not work on Nokia’s Lumia 610 Windows Phone device.
The reason for that is simple: the handset features only 256MB of RAM, which is not enough for it to provide users with a consistent experience when running specific applications.
Angry Birds is one of these, along with Skype and some other popular applications currently available in the Windows Phone Marketplace.
Due to this limitation, Nokia’s Lumia 610 is prohibited from accessing the game through the official app store.
However, it appears that the device can in fact run the game, and it can also provide a good experience to its users.
The video that can be seen embedded at the bottom of this article (via WeLoveWPHK) is meant to prove that, and those planning on getting a Lumia 610 should have a look at it to get an idea of how things work.
What’s even better is that Nokia has already confirmed that there will be an optimized flavor of the mobile game coming to the Windows Phone Marketplace soon, so that owners of entry-level Windows Phones could enjoy it.
Microsoft has been long suggesting that developers should have a look at their applications to see what they can optimize in order to make them compatible with these devices, and it seems that Angry Birds will get this treatment too.
As can be seen in the video, the game does show some lag when running on the low-RAM Windows Phone, yet this issue should be resolved as soon as Rovio comes up with the new, optimized flavor.
We should expect Angry Birds to be one of the many Windows Phone software set to get a taste of these optimizations. Microsoft is determined to make its platform as appealing as it can be at the low end of the market too, and providing users with popular apps would be the right thing for them to do.
