While it looked like Motorola was going to drop Windows Mobile support by letting go of 77 Windows Mobile developers, that’s not the case. A Motorola spokesperson stated that Motorola will still back Windows Mobile. Those future Android Moto phones will still have Windows Mobile company.
The 77 weren’t the only people let go; Motorola laid off 3,000 people from its mobile devices division in total. Like so many companies, Motorola has been hit hard lately. Motorola took itself from irrelevance to superstar with phones like the Razr. Who knows where they would have been if the original Moto Rokr, its collaboration with Apple, did not flop.
With Windows Mobile and Android, maybe Moto can get its act together to build something to restore its reputation.
