We haven't heard any confirmations of this just yet, but PalmInfocenter has it that a number of Palm employees have already been shown the door and asked not to come back. Citing "reliable sources," it goes on to mention that the layoffs could reach beyond North America and could affect "hundreds" of employees. 'Course, the past few months quarters haven't been the best Palm has ever seen or anything, but this would certainly make a bad year even worse if true.
