Although the Android App Player for the BlackBerry PlayBook has been downloaded a multitude of times already, we just received an official statement from Research In Motion regarding the leak, it's stability and when we can expect an official version to be released.
"An older version of the Android App Player beta software for the BlackBerry PlayBook was inadvertently posted and has since been removed. We recommend that users refrain from downloading and installing this software since it is outdated and non-functional in many respects. The official beta release of the Android App Player for the BlackBerry PlayBook is on track for release later this summer."
We do of course agree with RIM here -- the Android App Player is buggy at this point and it's not exactly for the faint of heart. The leak, shouldn't be loaded on on your PlayBook without the understanding of the fact you could seriously mess things up. That said; hopefully RIM will see how much interest this peaked among BlackBerry PlayBook
users and drop the Android App Player for us all very soon.
