Expectations were high as Research In Motion kicked off BlackBerry World this morning in Orlando, Fla., which saw the offer up a video demo of its upcoming BB 10 platform. The OS promises some intriguing features, including the consumer-friendly multimedia functionality that RIM so sorely lacks. But RIM once again failed to produce any new devices or commit to a consumer launch date for BB 10, despite the fact that the company acquired the QNX platform more than two years ago. RIM’s new leadership seems to have the sense of urgency that its former co-CEOs inexplicably lacked, but the company continues to pay a hefty price for its unwillingness to evolve beyond BlackBerry OS. It will continue to pay that price until it can bring a great new OS to market — and maybe beyond.
