Around May, Google completed the deal of acquiring Motorola Mobility, previously, Motorola had been facing financial setback as its stock values depreciate drastically. Motorola, once a giant in the mobile phone industry couldn’t withstand the competition against the smartphone market ruler, Apple and Samsung.
Trust Google, endowed with the spirit of raising dead business, considering its ventures into Android Inc. some years back, the Android business has received a drastic transformation maintaining the lead in the day’s mobile operating system. Such is what is expected Google to do with Motorola it had just acquired.
The workforce of of the company will be cut down globally by 20 percent as Google strategy to begin the resurrection of the dead Motorola. Google announced alongside that it will be closing down some Motorola offices.
A total of 94 offices was owned by Motorola worldwide and will be reduced to around a third; Google is trying to start from the scratch, turning things around for the Motorola brand. It also announced that it is time to stop making low end devices.
The reason for Google going after Motorola was because of its large patent portfolio, and it will become more interesting of Google can popularize Motorola’s mobile devices.
To say the truth, the hard times Motorola faced in its smartphone ventures is due to the competition faced with Samsung and Apple both dominating the market in a very big way, let’s give Google some time, to see if it can bring back the sovereignty to Motorola.
I think with this move, the whole of the company’s production will be reduced and have negative impact unless Google quickly expand the company’s business or change its scope of business so that new people can invest in the company.
Like me now, I have lost all hopes in the technology company but if they can do something to bring the company back, I will have no other option than using products from the company.
