    Google Plans to Eliminate 4,000 Jobs at Motorola Division

    Google axes 4000 jobs - sure looks like an interesting Motorola Mobility "tablet" device the gentleman in the article is holding... and it ain't a Nexus 7 as best I can tell...

    Moto is not dead -- it's being restructured to reduce costs and concentrate the number of hardware models.

    Oky,
    But the way I see it "being restructured" is just a fancy word to deceive people. Just see, how many times RIM executives have used this word.

    Anyways I do believe that Motorola died the day Google acquired it. Now its just Google, or may be with some launcher type skin saying Motorola. Over the period it WILL become just stock Google.

    do we really need a Razr and a Razr Maxx? should have been the Maxx to begin with. if they cut on products like this, then go for it.

    It kinda looked like the upcoming Bobj case for the N7 a little. I sure don't think Google acquired Moto just to kill them. With Asus (Pegatron) making the Microsoft Surface, and everyone else's kit as well, maybe Google wants their own skin in the game...

    I Agree, Google won't kill them.
    But they'll not remain Motorola for sure, may be a Google Hardware labs or something. Motorola with their lock bootloader and mentality like a 90's company doesn't fit in Google's modern comparatively open minded portfolio.
    Motorola has to go. Period.

    Axeteve, do you really think the locked bootloader is Motorola's idea, or the product of a carrier's demands? Initially (a year or so ago), I thought that was the case, but then I got to thinking about one particular carrier and sort of changed my mind. I don't think Motorola really cares much one way or another and simply gives in to carrier demands, no matter how outrageous.

    @UltraDroid, I don't know why you are saying that, You are a mod here. Must be in US and for sure must be more aware then me on tech / android scene.

    Anyways. I agree that carrier demand is a factor, But it is not 'the' only factor. Motorola was / is never open about it's hardware and software.
    If carriers are 'the' only reason then we have HTC, Samsung, ZTE even asus but we never stuck with locked bootloaders.

    And as far as I remember, There was a lot of media hype a year ago, when on youtube comment ,Motorola has commented to a person. "We would not so away with locked bootloaders, If you are not interested then go buy some manufacturers device." and the guy whom they've replied to was a senior developer on xda and was working for google on android development.
