BlackBerry announced Friday it plans on cutting 4,500 jobs in a major restructuring strategy. Earlier in the day BlackBerry halted trading with “news pending” on the Toronto Stock Exchange and NASDAQ.

BlackBerry’s restructuring strategy has been rumored from complete liquidation to massive layoffs. Many pundits and consumers have criticized the Waterloo company’s actions as too late to compete against Android and Apple iOS devices.
