Google markets Angry Birds as AdMob success story, soon to net Rovio $1 million per month

Google’s mobile AdMob team has posted a YouTube video touting the advertising success of Rovio’s wildly popular  mobile game, Angry Birds. In the clip, Peter Vesterbacka, Rovio’s Mighty Eagle, says that his company prefers using the ad-supported model featured in the application’s Android version to the paid-application model seen in the iOS game. To date, Angry Birds has been downloaded over 30 million times — 5 million times for Android alone. However, the most impressive number not mentioned in the video is $1 million. According to AllThingsD, that is the amount Mr. Versterbacka told Google Angry Birds for Android would net his company each month by year’s end. Hit the jump to see the full interview with the Mighty Eagle.
