NEW YORK -- Google is cutting an additional 1,200 jobs in its Motorola division as the unprofitable cellphone maker struggles to compete. Last summer, Google Inc. announced 4,000 Motorola job cuts. The latest reductions are in addition to those and will be in countries including the U.S., China and India.
"These cuts are a continuation of the reductions we announced last summer," Google spokeswoman Niki Fenwick said in an email. When Mountain View, Calif.-based Google bought Motorola last year for $12.4 billion, it had about 20,000 employees.
