NEW YORK (AP) — 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 summer, and will be in countries including the U.S., China and India.
When Google bought Motorola last year for $12.4 billion, it had about 20,000 employees. The online search leader has also pared the division with a planned $2.35 billion sale of the Motorola set-top business, which had about 7,000 employees.
Motorola has lost market share to Apple and Samsung.
The Wall Street Journal reported the job cuts in Friday's editions.
