This is really a shocking news from the inventor of Mobile phones. Instead of shutting down, please adopt new marketing techniques and make aware and ensure the general public about the service centre availability of phones. The major drawback of Motorola was the lack of service centers and marketing.

things must be bad to shrink work in asian countries, when there stopping jobs in places that what workers earn in a year than what executives in motorola earn in a day there is something fishy.

Very bad decision my Motorola. they could have easily conquered the market with few good models. Motorola Razr Maxx was one of that kind. No other phone is there to compete with that Super Phone. I would say a very dump decision.

Its one of the very bad news of my life, bcos I like motor very much, I am attached to it emotionally, and I am one of its oldest employees in india. Its not that moto can't do well in india, now or google and motor are one and the same, if new models are launched, with slight publicity definitely motorola will be the undisputed king again. What about its employees and promoters after shutting down in india.

hah i'm not suprised! never liked them and never had much of the market and for those who do like them have bad taste. Never the less it is always a shame that a company has to shrink its work force.

In one way, it is very sad to see Motorola shutting operations. I have had 3 motorolas including my current phone. I am a fan.

But on the other hand, people deserve this. When people are buying crappy plastic monilithic design phones in bulk and ignoring a brand like motorola, they don't need great phones. Tasteless and senseless buyers will always encourage louzy brands. I just realized that I live in such a region. :(
