Motorola lays off 1,200 employees in the U.S., China and India

08 March, 2013

Motorola Mobility has sent an email to its workforce saying more than 10% of the personnel is going to be laid off, according to a report by the Wall Street Journal.

The email, which affects about 1,200 employees in the U.S, China and India states that while we're very optimistic about the new products in our pipeline, we still face challenges.

Here's what a Motorola representative said to WSJ:

These cuts are a continuation of the reductions we announced last summer. It's obviously very hard for the employees concerned, and we are committed to helping them through this difficult transition.

Google is continuing to streamline Motorola Mobility after in August last year more than 4,000 people were let go, leaving the smartphone maker with 11,113 employees.

Agree Moto made ugly phones, except V3. Made for an American market with American design....too bulky. Should have been designed with a more universal design appeal.
