Angry Birds now take aim on the BlackBerry PlayBook

Angry Birds now take aim on the BlackBerry PlayBook
Sure, the BlackBerry PlayBook was missing a few critical features when it was launched. There was no email client and no calendar app on board the 7 inch tablet which was more than strange considering that enterprise users have had a love for all things BlackBerry for years. And besides, BlackBerry devices are known for their prowess when it comes to sending and receiving email.

Perhaps the most important exclusion from the tablet was its inability to play the extremely popular Angry Birds games. Actually, the entire BlackBerry platform has been unable to install the game. That is, until now. We are beyond ecstatic to tell owners of the BlackBerry PlayBook that their constitutional right to play Angry Birds has now been fulfilled. It has been a long time waiting for PlayBook owners who were told that Angry Birds was coming to the device months ago. Angry Birds, Angry Birds Rio and Angry Birds Seasons are available for $4.99 each from BlackBerry AppWorld. And of course, this makes Rovio some extra loot as well by opening up the PlayBook market to the game.

So what about playing Angry Birds on your BlackBerry smartphone? Well, the problem there is that the RIM tablet uses the QNX OS while the phones use the BlackBerry OS. Of course, in this season there is some good news because when RIM launches its line of SuperPhones next year, they will be powered by the BlackBerry 10 OS which is based on the QNX platform. If you love BlackBerry and want to play Angry Birds, you can get yourself a BlackBerry PlayBook or wait until the BlackBerry Surfboard is launched.

4.99 EACH? Pass. Maybe 4.99 for all 3. For reference, anyone know how much it costs on IOS? I know on Android they are only 99 cents each for the ad-free ones.

On iOS it's $0.99, but there isn't an ad-free option.
