If you were skeptical about how bad things are at Sony's Mobile Division, today's news might erase that skepticism. Sony will soon announce that they will be cutting 1000 jobs from their mobile division this year. This cut is actually part of a larger plan to cut a total of 5000 jobs by March of fiscal year 2016. Previously, Sony already cut 1000 jobs back in October of last year.
The official announcement will happen on February 4th when Sony reports its earnings for the period covering April through December. Along with this news, earlier reports indicating that Sony will be delaying the launch of their Xperia Z4 smartphone were corroborated by the source.
Things are looking bleak for the embattled Japanese megacorp.
