In a restructuring move, Motorola Mobility shuts down it's India website
In a bid to restructure the organization and minimize it's losses, Google owned Motorola mobility has now shut down it's Indian website and thus, would no longer operate in the country.
However, the company promises that it would still run a local support site for it's devices in India and provide support for it's existing devices in the country.
Earlier this year in August, Motorola announced that in a restructuring move, the company would cut-off twenty percent of it's work force globally and shut down one-third of it's total 94 offices worldwide.
If you log on to the Motorola India website, you'll notice a message that reads, " Important Message to our customers in India.
We are streamlining our business and support systems, and unfortunately, we'll no longer have a dedicated website for India.
Your local support site will remain open well into the future, and we'll continue to provide support for our existing products. If you are interested in viewing our current products, you can still do so here.*
*Products on these sites are not guaranteed to be available in your country."
If you're a Motorola fan, this news will surely come as a shock to you as from nuw, it is very unlikely that we would see any new products from the manufacturer in India.
In may this year, the internet giant Google acquired Motorola Mobility for $12.5 billion from Motorola solutions which had seen heavy losses since the past one year after losing money in fourteen out of the sixteen previous quarters.
Earlier, In a report by the New York times, Motorola Chief Executive Dennis Woodside said, "Woodside also plans to cut the number of devices Motorola makes from the 27 it introduced last year to just a few. He wants to make the company's products cool again by loading them with things like sensors that recognise who is in a room based on their voices, cameras that take crisper photos and batteries that last for days,."
Other than India, the company has also exited from other unprofitable markets in Asia, Europe, Middle east and Africa.
