Words With Friends Is Finally Getting an Android Port

Phandroid has just picked up an exciting scoop from a source that claims that New Toy Inc. is porting their widely popular online Scrabble clone, Words With Friends, to an Android device near you. When pinged about the possibility of an Android app, New Toy’s reply to Phandroid’s source was:

We’ve since hired a team to develop an Android version. They’re actively at work on it at the moment and are getting close to being done, so not too much longer!

Sooner rather than later seems to be the ETA of this high-profile mobile game. Android’s currently best offering to the online Scrabble gamers is Wordfeud. If Words With Friends for Android is cross-compatible with iOS, then Wordfeud will not remain the king for too long. Anyone excited for this port? This writer is!

    You guys should follow me, since I already broke this news weeks ago and had NewToy confirm to me directly on Twitter that they are working on the Android version.

    I for one can’t wait for it.

    Hey all,

    Just wondering if we have heard of the actual release date for the Droid Version of Words With Friends. I keep hearing soon but this post is from 12/14/10 and I am not finding any updates since that time. I do not “twitter” so I just google things to find out.
