"What happened in Vegas" video outed by RIM to recap its CES 2012 appearance

RIM compiled a short video to recap its CES 2012 appearance, while Rome (err, the stock price) is burning. The BlackBerry maker's shares actually rose yesterday on rampant speculation that it will be shopping itself to willing buyers, and has hired Goldman Sachs to determine the fair pricing.

These rumors have been going on for a while, but an analyst yesterday kept its HOLD rating on the stock, saying that, while the PlayBook OS 2.0 update we examined yesterday has brought on an impressive number of new features, RIM has a lot of headwind to deal with in the mobile business.

Watch the one-minute video that RIM compiled below, and tell us what you think of the company's appearance at CES 2012, and the new BlackBerry OS and PlayBook updates.

The co-Bozos that run RIM just don't seem to 'get' how serious the compay's predicament is. Keep it up guys, and RIM will join Palm in the ranks of failed formerly successful companies.

I will offer a $100. Then fix their OS and go to hardware that competes with Android Devices, Iphone and now even Window Phones. The only thing RIM has done hardware wise is the Playbook.

Pause it at :49 and find out how many different "features" they're actually presenting. It's the same "9" over and over again in a different format. LOL I can't believe they tried to pull a fast one with that.
