Motorola has confirmed plans to reduce its global footprint even further by shuttering the bulk of its operations in Korea. The company plans to close a research and design facility there, as well as close down its mobile device marketing organization. In a statement provided to TheNextWeb, Motorola said, "The changes in Korea reflect our plans to consolidate our global R&D efforts to foster collaboration, and to focus more attention on markets where we are best positioned to compete effectively." Approximately 90% of the employees in those facilities will lose their jobs, while the remaining 10% will be offered relocation. Motorola will continue to operate its Home and iDEN business units in Korea, as well as its handset warranty service operations. Motorola, which is owned by Google, has been cutting jobs and consolidating its office locations as it restructures.
