In a previous article here on N4G, this is one of the closures I predicted. Don't be surpised if the next cuts come in the mobile electronics divisions and the Vaio divisions. Those will be the two for the full time employee cuts to the tune of about another 5,000 folks. The remaining 9,000 employees will consist mostly of temp./part-time/seasonal employees with a smattering of middle management and support staff.
