Research in Motion to cut about 2,000 jobs

It’s no secret that Research in Motion is undergoing a reduction in staff.  Company execs said they were going to ‘streamline operations by eliminating jobs and reallocating resources‘ back during the Q2 Fiscal 2012 earnings call.  Reuters is reporting that RIM will cut about 2,000 jobs, or, 11% of its workforce and that severance payout is not included in 2nd quarter or full-year outlook.
