Angry Birds now available in RIM’s BlackBerry PlayBook


Research In Motion, the maker of BlackBerry, finally announced Wednesday that Angry Birds will now be available in their PlayBook device.

Due to their less-than-stellar sales of the PlayBook which sold less than a million units, RIM is slowly changing its course and moving away from being perceived as business-focused and is entering the consumer arena. The popular game from Rovio Entertainment and its sequels, Angry Birds Rio and Angry Birds Seasons, may help shift that image.

The company also admits that a they still have a high inventory of the product which means that they have to do more legwork in terms of promotional activities. The delay of the release of the second version of the device’s OS (to be released on February) was also partly to blame.

All three versions of the game are available in the BlackBerry App World at $4.99 each. The games are not yet available for Blackberry smartphones though as these run on a different and older operating system.
