We know that Google are retooling Motorola's workforce, which included the cut of around 20% of their staff, which will see 4,000 people lose their jobs. But, next to this bad news, is the creation of a new division within Motorola that looks to help mould the smartphone maker's future prospects in the market.
Motorola's new Advanced Technology and Projects department was created for a sole purpose, as an advanced research and development arm of the company that will help Motorola look for, and develop cutting-edge technologies. Google have also announced movements within Motorola's management, with former Defence Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) director, Regina Dugan, sitting in the new senior VP section of the company.
The ex-DARPA boss could lead to massive things at Motorola, with her experience in the industry being a key part of Motorola's future. What do you think Motorola will do with this new team?
