PlayBook maker Quanta Computers cuts 1,000 jobs at manufacturing plant

There is no denying that the BlackBerry PlayBook sales have not been up to snuff. Estimates put actual PlayBook sales somewhere around the 200,000 mark, but that is not an official reported number. To fuel the fire, Quanta Computer the PlayBook manufacturer, has confirmed to Digitimes that job cuts have occured with the rumored date being around the 1,000 mark.

While we would like to think that this has nothing do to with PlayBook sales and the success of RIM’s tablets. However the truth cannot be brushed under the carpet forever, and we can hope that the release of the PlayBook 2.0 update may help with some sales.
