250 workers axed at BlackBerry
Earlier this month, BlackBerry CEO Thorsten Heins asked his stockholders to be patient as the company continues to roll out new BlackBerry 10 models. The company is expected to launch the BlackBerry A10 in November. The device has been described as being the most powerful 'Berry ever. Leaked pictures and specs have revealed a 5 inch screen with 720 x 1280 resolution, a dual-core 1.7GHz processor, 2GB of RAM and 16GB of native storage. An 8MP snapper is expected on the back of the unit.
Earlier this month Heins told stockholders, "We are still in the midst of a major, complex transition of this company, and like most of these transformations ... progress can be volatile." With that in mind, we could see some more pruning of the employee roster by BlackBerry before the year is out.
