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.
