Google cutting 1,200 more jobs in Motorola division


NEW YORK — Google says it’s cutting an additional 1,200 jobs in its Motorola division as the unprofitable cellphone maker struggles to compete.

The latest reductions come on top of the 4,000 Motorola job cuts that Google Inc. announced last year, and they will be in countries including the U.S., China and India.

When Google bought Motorola last year for US$12.4 billion, it had about 20,000 employees.
