6.5 million downloads for Angry Birds on Christmas Day

Rovio had a record 6.5 million downloads for Angry Birds on Christmas Day 2011. No, that’s not excatly mind-blowing when compared to the hundreds of millions of times the avian avenger sim has been downloaded, but as AllThingsD points out those sales are nearly equivalent to the number of smartphone activations estimated to have happened over Christmas.

The 6.5 million total is a combination of Angry Birds, Angry Birds Seasons and Angry Birds Rio, which are available as paid or free downloads depending on platform. The download numbers have also tripled since last year, when Rovio revealed the franchise saw two million downloads.

Rovio may go public in 2012 with its sky-high valuation, even if analysts are standing by the side shaking their heads.
