    There is really nothing good to be said about that link. It's just a job posting on a website. They do not specify playbook apps, just Blackberry. Also, there is not a company named in the posting.

    It also says 50, not 50000 - he just put a ton of zeros after the decimal point.

    It's possible this was not posted by someone in North America. Don't they use "." as the thousands separator in Europe and Asia instead of the comma?

    No, you will have access to a virtual machine / runtime that can run Android apps that are available on BB App world. Developers will need to re-package their Android app, submit it to App World, have it vetted by RIM, and then it will appear on App World. That is not the same as "the Android library".

    People are acting like the PlayBook will suddenly have 100K+ apps available from the Android Market, and that is not the case at all. We'll be lucky if even a small fraction of developers take this path. I am thinking numbers in the hundreds or low thousands are more likely. Android developers generally want Android devices to succeed, not RIM's, and most don't care about the PlayBook right now. Their tablet focus is on Android 3.X, not the 2.X that the PlayBook will support.

    Yes, most european and south american countries use comma for decimal separation instead of a dot.
