On the announcement of BlackBerry Z30 recently, follows some pretty miserable news for the Canadian company. BlackBerry has told, that they need to get started with guys 4,500 employees which is equivalent to well over 40 percent of the work force.
The upcoming quarterly accounts also show a dramatic decline in earnings and a loss in the region of one billion dollars. There is simply not enough new BlackBerry phones, sold a total of 3.7 million units last quarter, where the majority are older models and not with the new BlackBerry 10 operating system.
BlackBerry has long been in trouble, but there are indications that their downfall comes creeping faster than expected if the strategy is not changed in a furious pace.
