RIM Cutting 2,000 Jobs

Posted in BlackBerry by Conner Flynn on July 25th, 2011

Sad news for folks working at RIM. Research In Motion has announced that they will be cutting 2,000 jobs. That’s about 10 percent of their workforce. They will also be moving some of their executives to different positions in the company.

It’s part of a streamlining at RIM and anyone who looked at the situation would have seen it coming. The company has struggled to compete with Google’s Android OS and Apple’s iOS devices, and has been losing its smartphone sales share for awhile.

Now we have more drama in the Apple antenna saga. Bloomberg says that someone “familiar with the matter” claims Apple’s own antenna expert, Ruben Caballero, told Apple management that the iPhone 4 antenna design could cause problems and dropped calls.

Caballero is a senior engineer for Apple who holds many antenna patents under his belt. We don’t know the whole story but it is the latest twist to this sorted tale and suggests that Steve Jobs had been alerted to this problem during the design phase.
