BlackBerry Confirms ‘Small Number of Employees Laid Off Today’

BlackBerry Canada

There were rumors late last night that BlackBerry sacked a large number of their sales staff. This was ancillary numbers based on a source that told the Cantech Letter that they suddenly had many friends change on BBM to a different email address from BlackBerry’s sales department. Not exactly a solid fact but it is worrisome. The WSJasked a BlackBerry spokesperson and they said “I can confirm a small number of employees were laid off today,” without providing additional details.

So who really knows what a small number is. Either way BlackBerry is definitely changing things up…

    Ohhh… And thanks for all the hard work & effort you guys put into this Website, & a Happy New Healthy Year to Ronen Halevy

    • Thanks for bringing it to my attention. A stray apostrophe in ASCII from a press release was screwing everything up. Thankfully it is fixed now that you pointed it out.

      Appreciate the well wishes and a happy new year to you to!

  2. Finally an on-topic post.

    I checked with sources and the “layoffs” are more a “re location”. Canadian staff selling into the USA were sadly laid off. However – it is to move that resource closer to the market by moving that function in to the USA instead of cross border.

    Makes perfect sense (unfortunately as it is for the people in Waterloo).

  3. @Ronen, Pls Can OS of Bold BlackBerry be installed on Curve Device. I mean if I have initially downloaded the New update Bolb OS and not to waste my time and Data once both are able to run either OS 6 or OS 7? Waiting for you. Thanks.
