Motorola cuts another 74 jobs in mobile division

Motorola cuts another 74 jobs in mobile division
The headaches are still continuing with the once venerable handset manufacturer announcing an additional 74 lay offs. Motorola has been to the pinnacle and reaped the rewards of being considered a juggernaut during its heyday. With increasing competition from other mobile manufacturers, Motorola is struggling to keep up in this volatile economy. Workers from its Libertyville, Illinois office will be let go towards the end of the month. It's unfortunate, but the cuts come in light after laying off 3,000 people in the mobile group earlier in the year – with 500 of them from the Libertyville office. Motorola CEO, Sanjay Jha, informed the industry that they would focus their attention on the Windows Mobile and Android platform for future devices. So far we've seen them become more aggressive in acquiring Android developers. Maybe the sleeping giant may have something in the works to really get itself out of its funk?
