BlackBerry Sacks More Than Half Its US Sales Employees


A new report in a small statement to the WSJ by the BlackBerry spokesperson confirmed that BlackBerry sacked more than half its US sales force.

According to the report, which originated from CantechLetter, says that the job cut was attributed to the very low sales of BlackBerry devices and "enterprise is gutted." Furthermore, the source says ”I had twenty guys (from BlackBerry) on BBM from sales, and they have all posted alternate emails on their status,”.

According to source, this laying off of sales team would spill over to  the UK soon enough.

This just further enforces that the company is readying itself to go private or get sold or even opt out of smartphones business altogether especially when it was rumored that Fairfax Financial may be looking to take BlackBerry private.

Which ever it is, we shall keep you posted as its happening.
