appworld on playbook problems (blackberry news app etc)

hi all. 

i was trying to download the blackberry news application and wordpress on my playbook. i found them on the net so clicked the link, my pb opened up the appword...and... disaster struck me:


i see the app but i get the message that this application is not compatible with my current device profile!!!!


is this a localisation issue? i bought my pb in spain and now i am in greece and seriously i cannot understand why am i not allowed to use a free app... enough with the localization 2nd category clients RIM! 

please help me out if you can with this one guys, any way to achieve installing the apps? 

thanks a lot!!!!

The error is that the app is compatitable with the playbook.
