Hopefully February, RIM previoulsy promised this when delayed initially, so can't see that being put back given adverse publicity when this was announced.
There will be a separate "Blackberry" Android Player which will be used to launch and buy/download Android Apps in addition to the existing Blackberry AppWorld. This will not be via the open "Android Market", but within the Blackberry set up, allowing Blackberry to verify all apps before they are avaialble, and so they get a cut of the app money.
There is a good YouTube video (sorry at work and can't access link) from Blackberry demoing how it will work - worth a look.
As an Android lover, this is all good news - more apps = good news.
