Scrabble to Debut on Android Next Week

One of the classic, all-time board games, Scrabble, is finally set to arrive on Android next week.   Its developers, EA, recently demonstrated the app and the cross-platform awesomeness that will also have support for iOS (iPhone and iPad) and Facebook.  So yeah, now you’ll be able to play against all your frienemies, regardless of where they happen to be.

We were able to spend some time playing with Scrabble back in May at Google IO and were instantly impressed.  As much as we love Wordfeud and Words With Friends, we can’t help but hold a special place in our hearts for the original.  Adding in cross-platform support through the Origin service and we are chomping at the bit.

According to EA, the game will be free when it arrives and will support nearly every device at launch.  Watch the Scrabble part of EA’s Summer Showcase 2011 here (roughly 33:00 mark).

    Not sure about Scrabble, but isn’t it much the same thing as Words Free which I’ve had on my Android for nearly 5 months?

    the last time I purchased an official Scrabble app, from EA, for my mobile device it was one of the WORST implemented UIs I’ve ever experienced. Granted, this was a few years ago, and on the Windows Mobile platform, but I expected SO much more from EA that K was comletely turned off of their products for years.

    At least this one will be free,and hopefully, at least, worth the price.
