Impact of Motorola layoffs?

2018-03-09, 1:24 AM

Will the recent Motorola layoffs have an impact on the further software development of our phones (security updates, Oreo)?

It's looking desperate for Motorola Mobility.

I've got some ideas for Motorola.

1. Have 1 C, 1E, 1G phone no more play and plus versions.

2. Only sell C in third world

3. Sign up for Android One program for very fast updates. Like HMD/Nokia. They have done this for a version of the X4.

4. Reduce bloatware to just the Moto App and Moto mods for Zx series.

5. Communicate update schedules and stick to them.

6. Use better repair agents than Anova.

7. Improve Network Operator relationships.

8. Get the phones in shops.

9. Stop making people redundant if the work still needs to be done.

10. Improve marketing messages so people know about the great value the G series offers or the shatter shield on the Z/Z2 Force etc. And what mods can do.

Change the branding. I'm not saying use this but an entry level phone called the Motorola Pistol, low mid range the Revolver, high mid range the Shotgun, high end the Rifle, Flagship the Missile. OK. Maybe not those names but a concept like that where people know where a product is in the range. Or just do Series 1, Series 3, Series 5, Series 7, Series 9.

First, there haven't been any recent layoffs at Motorola.  The article is all speculation.  It even speculates that layoffs will happen in April.

 

No one here has any official news.  The only official news comes directly from Motorola.
