Motorola has reported that a number of its Windows Mobile operating system developers are about to lose their jobs with the company. In fact, 77 people devoted to development in this area will leave. Despite this move, Motorola has declared that it still intends to support the Microsoft operating system, according to the PC World website.
Maya Komadina, a Motorola spokeswoman, said that: "It is important to note that Motorola's strategy for the Mobile Devices business has not changed – we continue to focus on Windows Mobile as one of our software platforms, and there are teams working on Windows Mobile development at other facilities."
Queries were made about the company's direction because Motorola recently declared it was heavily investing its resources into the development of the Android operating system. After this latest announcement, observers will keenly await further developmental decisions.
