RIM releases Android app player then removes it again

Gadgetlab posts on RIM’s Android app player being briefly released then withdrawn again.

I did have some hopes that the Playbook with it’s ability to run Android apps too might be a good cross platform device, but so far this has not really come about and the Android App player sounds like it isn’t ready yet, and may not be all I imagined either from this statement:

“Even with the Android app player, it does not support every app out there, and most apps still need to be ported over to work well,” Gartner mobile analyst Phillip Redman told Wired.com. “So though the intent is to open up [the PlayBook] to a wider variety of mobile apps, it will still be limited.”
