This is nearly the number of total smartphone activations estimated to happen over Christmas, which makes it even more impressive. Rovio's Ville Heijari told AllThingsD:

 

We're really excited to have such a massive number of new people get acquainted with Angry Birds over the holidays - we have exciting new releases lined up for 2012, and can't wait to introduce them to the public.

 

The 6.5 million total is a combination of Angry Birds, Angry Birds Seasons and Angry Birds Rio, and also includes a mix of paid and free downloads. Christmas 2010 saw just two million downloads spread across iOS and Android.
