    Source: BlackBerry just "gutted" its salesforce

    According to a source close to the matter, BlackBerry today laid off more than half its salesforce.

    The source, based in Waterloo, says consumer sales is basically gone and enterprise is gutted.

    I had twenty guys (from BlackBerry) on BBM from sales, and they have all posted alternate emails on their status, says the source.

    The source says the cuts began today in Waterloo and are rumoured to hit the U.K. within a few days

    The rumoured layoffs come after a report from the U.K.s Sunday Times said Fairfax Financial boss Prem Watsa was preparing to take over the company.


    If true, then it is not looking good. If false then someone has started a nasty rumour.
