LG to pre-load Angry Birds Rio on Optimus Series smartphones

May 11th, 2011 by LG Blog UK

My journey to work used to be mind-numbingly boring. That is until I discovered Angry Birds – a day I am both thankful and resentful of. Every spare moment from that moment forth was committed to catapulting a variety of angry birds at some little green pigs. And Angry Birds was only the beginning, Angry Birds seasons followed, as did YouTube videos of an Angry Birds cake, an Angry Birds board game and even research into some real life angry birds.

Good news reached me today, my addiction has been topped up thanks to LG’s announcement that from now-on members of the LG Optimus Series of smartphones will come with Angry Birds Rio pre-loaded – an extension of Rovio’s original Angry Birds Game developed in conjunction with Twentieth Century Fox featuring the feathered stars of the film Rio.

In Angry Birds Rio, the original Angry Birds are kidnapped and taken to the city of Rio, where they eventually escape and set out to save their friends, Blu and Jewel – two rare macaws and the star of Fox’s motion picture, Rio.

Angry Birds Rio will be available on LG’s Optimus Series smartphones starting in the second quarter of 2011

Rio is in Cinemas worldwide now
