Public release of emulator unlikely

Videos surfaced last week of a BlackBerry PlayBook running iOS applications inside a emulator. The first, heavily edited, video (seen below) showed the user playing a handful of iOS specific game titles, such as Tiny Tower, Super Monkey Ball, and GalCon inside of the player.

The developer has stated that he is unsure if he could ever release the player application, but does not specify why.
