Words With Friends Coming to Android Later this Month, Honeycomb Version Too


Hey guys, be prepared for a significant drop-off in articles from me on Phandroid at the end of this month. Why? Because Zynga is releasing Words With Friends for Android. The addicting word game (a big hit on iOS) is a Scrabble clone that does the original one better by providing a great gaming experience that lets you pit your dictionary knowledge against any friend over an internet connection.

We’ve been hearing word that this was coming, but Zynga showed it off yesterday at Google’s Honeycomb event on both phone and tablet. The Honeycomb version is looking pretty great (check out the Androinica video below), and the game will be available as a free download. A paid version comes later removing ads, adding cross-platform gaming, in-game chat, and push notifications. Anyone out there think they have what it takes to challenge me?
