Motorola quits Samsung's home market, Google restructuring cuts more than 500 jobs
Motorola under Google promises to become a brand new company (and one with timely Android updates, please), and the restructuring has already started. Now, however, Motorola has confirmed that it will exit South Korea, the home market of companies like Samsung and LG, only retaining 10% of its R&D workers, granting them relocation packages.
