A new rumor has sprung up that RIM is cleaning house. According to an unnamed source, RIM’s new CEO Thorsten Heins has begun getting rid of high-level staff. The source with apparent knowledge of Mr. Heins’ actions said RIM executives at the senior vice-president and vice-president levels had been told they no longer had jobs on Thursday.

No names have been mentioned yet, but the source claimed, “Lots of high level people within RIM were let go today. Quite a few. Big shake up.” We’ll keep you updated if there is any new updates to this.
