Samsung hopes Angry Birds Space will catapult Galaxy Note

A special demo of the game on the large-screened Samsung Galaxy Note will launch the oversize phone into orbit, if all goes according to Samsung's plan.

Remember earlier this week when Samsung teased a special announcement at its South by Southwest booth in Austin, Texas? Well, it isn't the pink Samsung Galaxy Note.

Instead, Samsung says it will help Rovio launch the next wave of its blockbuster Angry Birds series, Angry Birds Space. Tomorrow at 4 p.m. CT, Samsung will offer hands-on demos of the game on the Samsung Galaxy Note.

The hope is clearly that lovers of the ornery ornithological critters will appreciate catapulting the squawkers on a large, 5.3-inch HD Super AMOLED screen, thus earning a secondary appreciation for the device as well as for the unreleased game itself.

Samsung will also reprise the event on March 10 from 2:30 until 6:00 p.m. CT at a separate event.

Angry Birds Space officially launches on March 22, and will gain new physics obstacles like zero gravity and slow-motion puzzles.
