The Android Player is not visible as a standard app, it is available as a service to launch Android app. If you sideload an Android App to the PlayBook, that app will appear normally in the app menu, and when launching it, it will run inside the Android Player.

Users get Android apps from the App World, just as you would normal BB app, to the final user, the installation process is transparent, it is up to app devs to repackage their app to BlackBerry .bar format and release them on AppWorld.
If you want to side load your own Android App, you can package it to a .apk, then convert it to a .bar, and finally load it to the PlayBook using the command line blackberry-deploy tool.
I'm glad there is no Android app to launch, I prefer it like that, ultimately, users just get apps from app world, and the developer is the only one to know what kind of technology he used to make the app, be it AIR, WebWorks, Native or Android, I'd definetely not like to have separate markets for each of these...
