App World gets bird-physics-slingshot simulator

The newest installation of Rovio's popular game series, Angry Birds Space ($3, BlackBerry App World) arrived for RIM's BlackBerry PlayBook tablet on Tuesday. Previously, the game was erroneously posted as available on April 10 of this year, though the link was quickly removed. Now, the zero-gravity bird slingshot game is available to all PlayBook owners except those in South Korea and Brazil.

The release of this new version of the record-setting series could prove something of a boon for RIM, which has seen its PlayBook struggle to make headway against Apple's iPad and an array of Android tablets.

Despite these struggles, RIM maintains that its App World is the second most profitable mobile app store after Apple's. RIM is also preparing a range of devices aimed at reversing its market share decline, though these are unlikely to be released before the second half of this year. [via CrackBerry]
