Rovio reveals mega stat for its movie-branded spin-off game for iPhone and Android.
Rovio Mobile has announced that its new Angry Birds Rio game has racked up more than 10 million downloads across iOS and Android in its first ten days of availability.
The developer tweeted the cryptic message "10 in 10:-) Angry Birds Rio breaking all records. A massive thanks to all our fans!!!!" a few minutes ago, and when ME checked that it was referring to 10 million downloads, responded "yes:-)"
The figure covers paid and free downloads, obviously. Angry Birds Rio is a paid title on iPhone and iPad, but was made available for free on Android through an exclusive deal with Amazon, on its new Appstore for Android.
It has since also been distributed through Google's Android Market, also for free. It's the latest monster milestone for the Angry Birds series, which recently sailed through the 100 million total downloads mark.
