People at Motorola waiting for the other shoe to drop won't wait much longer.
The troubled cellphone maker that Google bought earlier this year will see a 20 percent cut among employees and the shuttering of a third of its offices, according to its new parent company.
At the heart of Google's May acquisition of the phone company were Motorola's patents—something many see as an entry point for the tech giant to begin manufacturing hardware for its Android mobile business. Some 1,300 jobs of the 4,000 in cuts announced this week will be based in the U.S.
Google representatives suggest the company plans to focus on relaunching a few new Motorola cellphone models rather than an array. Whether consumers will buy something that says Motorola or Google on it, versus Samsung or Apple, remains to be seen.
