Angry Birds doesn't fix the lack of basic features
RIM has happily announced that the PlayBook now has access to some of the most popular game apps around for tablets. One of the apps is the world beating Angry Birds. You can't send email using the Playbook, but you can get your pig killin' on all you want.
Along with the original Angry Birds, you can also get Angry Birds Rio and Angry Birds Seasons. If only they were as excited about adding email and other basic features as they are games, the tablet might do well. The apps each cost $5 per offering.
That is expensive for the apps. Android users get the games for free to put up with a few ads and generally the games are cheaper on iOS too. I paid a buck on my iPhone for the original game.
