Motorola: With Google, will the company see a big revival?
In a world where mobile technology reigns just about supreme, Motorola Mobility one of which was formerly a leading U.S cell phone maker may or may not just see a spike in company popularity after being acquired by Google (Goog) earlier this year.
In an interview with The New York Times, Motorola‘s C.E.O Dennis Woodside discussed the company’s immediate plans to axe a fifth of its staff, and even revealing that more than 4,000 U.S jobs will see their doomsday.
Behind the doors of Google’s latest laboratory will be those secretly working on top secret mobile products specially for Motorola Mobility in a final bid to revive the ailing mobile technology maker.
Google confirmed to Daily News that these plans are in fact in motion, and even told DN about a ‘project’ being put into place that will bring in a number of leading researchers and scientists [but only for two years] before they are given the door.
