BlackBerry cuts an undisclosed number of jobs

BlackBerry Passport review

It’s been over a year since BlackBerry made news with another round of job cuts. According to a report from CBC, BlackBerry has shed an unknown number of jobs, while shifting another small number to various departments within the company. Unfortunately, the company declined to give insights into the number of people impacted or which departments.

In a statement, a BlackBerry spokesperson said, “Our intention is to reallocate resources in ways that will best enable us to capitalize on growth opportunities while driving toward sustainable profitability across all facets of our business.”

The company’s recent quarterly results showed a movement towards higher services revenue, largely at the expense of hardware sales. The company lost $28 million in the quarter on revenue of $658 million.

While most of the company’s recent focus has been on enterprise security, BlackBerry recognized sales of 1.1 million smartphones last quarter, at an average selling price of $240.
