[ Edited ]

Android apps launches as other types apps (native, AIR, HTML5). To install Android APK on PlayBook you should repack it to BAR or install Android app from BlackBerry App World.

Re: Where's the android player?

You can buy Angry Birds from App World:

Keep in mind that these apps are native not Android.
