Job cuts to happen at Sony Ericsson

So maybe the company/venture isn’t OK as the previously released company statement indicated. Now, a few months later, word hits that 2,000 peeps are about to lose their jobs due to decline sales.

These layoffs are part of a plan to bring the company back to profitability after seeing a 35% drop in phone shipments from last year. No word where the cuts will come from, or who they will effect, which must mean a lot is getting done around the ol’ Sony Ericsson HQ today. Everyone knows that when layoffs are announced on a Friday, productivity skyrockets.
