Google’s Motorola Mobility unit is in the process of cutting a further 1,200 jobs amid continued challenges in its core cell phone business.
As reported earlier on Thursday evening by the Wall Street Journal, the cuts will eliminate more than 10 percent of the hardware maker’s workforce.
A Motorola spokesman confirmed the company is making cuts, but declined to go into details.
“These cuts are a continuation of the reductions we announced last summer,” Motorola said in a statement. “It’s obviously very hard for the employees concerned, and we are committed to helping them through this difficult transition.”
