PB android implementation isn't truly android. Some API aren't supported. I don't like the way how android apps are working in PB now - all running apps inside one android player.

So... now, what should we learn to develop BB applications?. QNX, Android or Webworks (Don't like webapps anyway). And I'm currently developing a BB java based application for existing customer phones... I really doubt they will change to QNX phones during the next year... so BB development is still the only way for now... but It worries me the future, will we need to reimplement the whole application using other platform?? What would you recommend me?.

RIM has confirmed what I mentioned earlier, that the PlayBook OS and BB 10 will share the same basic framework. If you want to prepare your application for BB 10, it would probably be a good idea to develop a PlayBook version of your application. That way, when BB 10 devices arrive, you can probably just reuse most of the code from your PlayBook version and alter the visuals, and you will also have a PlayBook version available in App World.

Developer choices are listed here on their official site: https://bdsc.webapps.blackberry.com/devzone/platfo
As usual when dealing with RIM, it is misleading in a hostile way. The only way to know that legacy Java is not supported on PlayBook is that a small, hardly visible icon of a tablet is missing under its description. Basically, HTML is the only platform that they support both on PlayBook and on phones -- meanwhile they create the illusion that you have a wide range of option to choose from; see their original press release and compare it with reality: http://press.rim.com/release.jsp?id=4935
