    It's an emulator that allows you to use android apps on your BlackBerry. It's there to lessen to the app gap.

    Nope. It only runs when you use an android app, but some apps in bbw are android ports and they use it as well.
    Try this Settings - App Manager - app permissions (in blue) turn off any apps running in the background and running while minimized. It should help out your battery.

    It's needed for any Android Apps you install or for any "ported" apps installed from BlackBerry World. If those apps need to run in the background, then so will the Player....

    It is part of the OS and can not be removed.... (well at least not yet).
