Google’s new Motorola Mobility division will undergo some major changes in the coming months. The New York Times reports that the company plans to reduce its workforce by 20 percent, which means about 4,000 will loose their job. A third of those people are expected to be in the United States. Motorola plans to leave several “unprofitable” markets entirely. It also hopes to base most of its research and development in Chicago, IL, Sunnyvale, CA and Beijing, China, while reducing its current presence in Asia and India.
Finally, the company hopes to release fewer phones from here on out, similar to what HTC has done recently.
Do you think this is what Motorola needs to do to regain its mobile market?
