Comments on: Report: Job Cuts at Palm Inc
News.com is reporting on new round of job cuts at Palm Inc. today. The article says some workers are still in the process of being notified of the cuts this afternoon. The total number of layoffs is not known at this point.
"It's a small percentage of our workforce," Palm spokesman Jim Christensen told News.com, adding that Palm still has openings in some areas. The bulk of the jobs being eliminated are in the U.S. and in Palm's development ranks, though there are some cuts across the company, he said.
Christensen said the move was "not about cost-cutting" but rather about "eliminating some of the hierarchy" at the company.
