I think it's very crisp and readable, even in the minimized bitmap images in the shuttle bar area. As one who favours usability over cosmetic concerns, I like it.
That's not to say it might not also be "dated" and "not modern", but those don't carry any weight with me.

Do we know yet what other fonts come installed on the PlayBook and how to access them? The default font will make do, but if it is simple enough I would prefer a sans-serif font for the application I am currently working on.

Please refer to this previous topic for info about how to find out what fonts are installed, as well as a thread where apparently we've been asked to request fonts that we want.
There is as yet no official word on which fonts will be available, and clearly a decision has not been announced yet.
