Angry Birds Developer Rovio Building Its Own Billing System

Ryan Kim, for GigaOm:

Rovio is taking its success with mobile game Angry Birds — 50 million downloads and counting — and using it to launch a new in-app purchase, carrier-billing payment system. The mobile developer said it’s launching Bad Piggy Bank early next year with Finnish carrier Elisa, allowing users to upgrade to an ad-free version of Angry Birds or buy Angry Birds’ first virtual good — the Mighty Eagle character — with one tap.
