Motorola Mobility are planning to cut a whopping 800 jobs according to a regulatory filing they issued. Bloomberg is suggesting that the job cuts are in an effort to improve Motorola’s earning in the future, seeing as they lost over $30 million in the last quarter alone. The reduction of losses will also ready the company for when Google is expected to take over in the coming months.
My suggestion to Motorola is to stop making zany looking devices and just make stuff that works really well and what consumers want. They’re certainly headed down the right track with the RAZR, but it’s just a start. Hopefully Google can pull them out of the slump they’re in.
