Angry Birds Space available on BlackBerry PlayBook but still not Windows Phone

Angry Birds Space available on BlackBerry PlayBook but still not Windows PhoneIt caused a bit of a stir when it landed on iOS and Android earlier this year, clocking up 20m downloads in a week. And we know some of you are desperate to know when Angry Birds Space will arrive at Windows Phone's door.

But if you're a BlackBerry Playbook owner, we have good news today in that you can now get it for the RIM tab and enjoy a few jealous stares from those WinPho types.

When the game first arrived, Rovio no doubt angered Microsoft by stating that it had no plans to port the addictive platform to its flagship new OS.

That statement was later played down and, of course, you can get the original Angry Birds on Windows Phone - even though it did take a little time.

Obviously, Android and iOS are the two big ones but we have to admit, we're pretty perplexed that it's opted for a PlayBook version instead, even though it is much easier to do so. PlayBook owners can side load Android apps to their devices though not for much longer.

For its part, RIM seems to still be committed to the PlayBook. Despite the fact that many regard it as a little bit of a joke and a dead tablet walking with no real hope of salvation, it's maker is still churning out accessories and demonstrating it backs the ill-fated device.

What do you reckon? Good call by Rovio? Let us know below.

Are Microsoft not offering a good cut to Rovio?

Suspect this was ready same time as the android one and took bb this long to pass it. Seems like more effort needed for WP7, be there soon enough I would think.
In honesty I can't be bothered to download it on ios or android.
