Google's Motorola Mobility officially wrapped up its business operations in India by shutting down the country specific product website of Motorola Mobility.
Earlier it was reported that Google was ending its Motorola Mobility business in many countries including India. Now the report is officially confirmed as the Indian website of the company greets customers with a message that reads:
"We are streamlining our business and support systems, and unfortunately, we'll no longer have a dedicated website for India.
Your local support site will remain open well into the future, and we'll continue to provide support for our existing products.
If you are interested in viewing our current products, you can still do so here.*
Important Message to our customers in India
*Products on these sites are not guaranteed to be available in your country."
This move seems to be a part of Motorola's global downsizing process. In August, Motorola had confirmed its decision to cut off 20 percent of work force and shut down operations in many countries.
Motorola Mobility, which is totally independent from Motorola Solutions, had incurred heavy loss last year. Google took over the company for $12.5 billion in May this year. Google had earlier said in a filing to the US Securities and Exchange Commission, "These changes are designed to return Motorola's mobile devices unit to profitability, after it lost money in fourteen of the last sixteen quarters," as reported by IBN Live.
The company is likely to continue its sales in India till the stocks lessen. It is rumored that India may not see any new products from Motorola. It was reported that the existing customers would continue to get the service centre support.
