It was fun while it lasted.
A little over a year back, Google purchased Motorola Mobility- the division that is in charge of making handsets like RAZR. Most analysts looked at the deal as a valuable resource for Google because of the patents that Motorola held in the industry. Looks like they were pretty much spot-on.
After reducing the staff by almost 4,000 Motorola Mobility has now shut down most of it’ international websites including the one for Middle East as well as for Europe and Asia. If you visit the website, you get the following message:
We are streamlining our business and support systems, and unfortunately, we’ll no longer have a dedicated website for Middle East & Africa.
We have reached out the local representatives for Motorola Mobility to hear the official word and will update the story when we do.
