Bluetooth headset maker Aliph has let go of 25 employees, or approximately 30 to 33 percent of its workforce, CNET News is reporting. An anonymous source gave the number; the company confirmed layoffs on the record but refused to confirm the number the source had given.
“Given the current economic climate and opportunities we have to more efficiently bring products to market, we are realigning our resources to increase focus on our core technology and products. As part of this effort, we have eliminated a number of positions in the organization,” an Aliph spokesperson said in the article. Given that Aliph is one of the more popular wireless device makers, this is an ominous sign for the industry as a whole.
