    Since there are so many threads asking whether Android Player is officially part of the upcoming update, here is a proof it is. See the video at 5:10 and on.

    BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.0 hands-on (video) -- Engadget

    Edit: To all commenters saying it's old news as Android Player has been part of the BETA OS 2.0:

    I don't know if you ever read stuff on this forum but people have been going nuts because Android Player was not on the list of features in the official Press Release and was not mentioned in the review videos on Crackberry homepage. Many feared that Android Player will not make it to the official release. I am too lazy to quote all such posts. There are too many of them.

    Anyway, you are welcome

    I know it's part of the BETA OS 2.0. But if you read other recent threads and posts, people are asking whether it is part of the OFFICIAL February release. Many complain that it hasn't been mentioned in the press release or the videos on the CrackBerry homepage. Duh....

    You are the only one who doesn't read other threads before jumping into writing something like ^^^^

    Well, it's as much of a proof as it is for the native email, calendar, etc. I highly doubt that RIM will drop the ball again as it will simply be the last nail in the coffin for RIM as it will create a huge PR disaster.

    Yes but they still won't be happy. When O22 is delivered and its more fabulous than they ever imagined they will still say "Too little, too late! I gave up waiting for [insert miscellaneous bell or whistle here] and sold my PlayBook for a tenth of what I paid for it. I used my cash to buy a [insert miscellaneous device here]. RIM == FAIL!".

    It will never be good enough for some. Fortunately crackberry gave us this
    Hopefully someday it will bake bread because this new bread maker is driving me nuts. I did however get my first loaf to stand up on its own.

    It will be there. I just don't think you'll hear it referred to as the Android Player. I think RIM wants it to be transparent to users whether they are running an Andriod app or a native Playbook app. The Android player is more of a behind the scenes tool designed to make switching between apps (native or Android) seemless and unnoticable.

    In the press release, there was a statement about thousands of more apps available. I think that is as close a reference to Android Player as you'll hear. Also, keep in mind that the Android Player is just that - a player - and not a complete installation of any specific version of Android. RIM wants all apps for the Playbook downloaded via App World. Unless your device is rooted, then don't expect to see the Android Market on your Playbook.

    Because android = google. If ford suddenly had to put gm 5.7 liters in there mustang, you think they would advertise it? This is marketing 101 and not rocket surgery! Wait what?

    Buddy... Did you watch the video from today at CES? This is what will ship!
    They don't want to call it the Android player anymore OK? They just want to have more apps and not "mention" where they originally came from OK?
    They don't want to call the OS BBX anymore either, does that make the OS non-existant or a lie?
    Relax man... have a cookie.

    The blinking LED is not something I was waiting for.
    In the beta the option is there for LED or glow or both. It's nice to see people that want the LED can have it though.

    Doesn't knead the exercise. It just gets baked and loafs around.
