Helsinki developer Rovio still flying high

Rovio, the Finnish studio that realised the App Store dream of turning an indie studio into a world-conquering money-maker, has found new success on Android devices.

The studio that saw its full-price Angry Birds game downloaded nearly seven million times on Apple’s App Store, has now passed two million downloads on google’s own Android Market.

“Another day, another million,” read a post by Rovio on the social networking site Twitter.

Rovio said the first million Angry Birds downloaded on Android was achieved in less than 24 hours.
