InMobi lays off 10% of staff

In order to cut costs, mobile ad network InMobi has reportedly cut 10% of its staff. The cutback is affecting a total of 100 employees and is an indication of the strong competition within the mobile advertising space. InMobi has been in strong competition with Facebook and Google to provide data-driven mobile campaigns.
