BlackBerry May Close Swedish Design Lab
BlackBerry is considering whether or not to shutter its operations in Sweden. About 100 people work at the facility, which helped develop some BlackBerry smartphones such as the Z10. The company has initiated conversations with the employee unions at the facility in question and will make a final decision in the weeks ahead.

Earlier this week it announced plans to acquire a secure file management company called WatchDox.
