Celestica, an original device manufacturer that has for years built BlackBerries, servers, and other hardware for Research In Motion, will "wind down" its manufacturing services for RIM. The company said in a statement that the transition away from RIM's products will take three to six months to complete, and it expects to take a restructuring charge of less than $35 million. Last month, RIM warned that it will have to write-down $1 billion of inventory of unsold BlackBerry smartphones, which indicates it has a significant surplus of hardware at the moment.
