Or are they merely trying to imply support to entice users?

Monday 11th of October 2010 will be a big day for Microsoft.  It’s the day in which Windows Mobile 7 hits the streets.  You would be forgiven if you are not excited for such an event as forgetting the in-demand products from Apple or the Android platform, there may be some of you out there who remember the recent Kin, the phone which not only flopped catastrophically but allegedly stopped CEO Steve Ballmer getting his full bonus.

For those of you with the iPhone or an Android phone you may have heard about Angry Birds.  Its a popular title which has met which much success.  It appears as though Microsoft either assumes that everyone wants to create for its Windows 7 Mobile platform, or that they can push a few more units by including the logo on their site.    This would be fine if the Angry Birds devs hadn’t noticed.  Unfortunately for Microsoft they have and an apparent “Angry Dev” has said:

we have NOT committed to doing a Windows Phone 7 version, at least not yet. Icon on MS site is unauthorized.

and

We have NOT committed to doing a Windows Phone 7 version. Microsoft put the Angry Birds icon on their site without our permission.

Are last-minute nerves getting to Microsoft and they are willing to imply anything just to sell one more unit?

I’ll let you decide.
