Could be. My point(excuse the pun) may be better when read in conjunction with http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Angels_dancing_on_the_head_of_a_pin

I'm not sure about the "dancing" part but
I read somewhere that the figure was
330 million. Don''t ask me how it was
calculated out.

So how many pins have you got?

Assuming an angel can't get smaller than the Planck length and they don't mind dancing close together, I've read 10^50 to 10^63, depending on the size of the pin.

This page takes it a bit further by considering quantum mechanics as well:
