Motorola Won't Close down Research Centers in China
Motorola China spokesperson said yesterday that Motorola would not close down its six research centers in China because they were crucial for the company's global strategy.

The announcement came shortly after Motorola unveiled its plans to cut 3,000 jobs globally in a bid to save as much as USD 800 million in overhead expenses. The company recorded USD 397 million in losses in the third quarter of 2008.

It is still unclear how many jobs the company is about to lay off in China as the latest staff reduction will not be carried out until 2009.

Motorola this time is set to further integrate and slim its mobile phone unit and it will put its priority on handsets powered by its P2K, Google's Android, and Microsoft's Windows Mobile.

As China has been less affected by the global financial crisis, Motorola hopes the vast and profitable market in China can help it regain its ground in the mobile phone market.
