Motorola to Cut Up to 1,200 Employees in US, China, and India

Some not so good news for Motorola is on the way, as up to ten percent of its workforce in the US, China, and India could be cut soon. The company has been making reductions since last summer, and this upcoming batch is just another part of the overall plan. That ten percent accounts for about 1,200 employees across the three regions, which is never easy to deal with in the current economic landscape. The company did say it's helping its employees through the "difficult transistion," but what exactly that entails wasn't clarified. Motorola cited a combination of high costs and low sales as the reason for the cuts, though new devices on the horizon should hopefully alleviate those problems.
