Motorola and Sony Ericsson continue further cost cutting

Motorola and Sony Ericsson, two of the world’s most well-known phone manufacturers, signalled more evidence of their plight last week with a raft of further cost cutting.Motorola is set to cut 4,000 jobs in addition to the 3,000 it announced in 2008, in a bid to reduce costs.The majority of cuts will come from its mobile devices division to save $700m (£481m) in 2009, in addition to the $800m (£550) it said it would save in 2009 from its restructure last year.

Motorola will now focus almost completely on phones based on the Android operating system, rather than Windows Mobile. It is also scaling back the number of new handsets it will produce.Last week, Sony Ericsson announced results that were worse than many analysts had expected, posting a £6.9m loss in 2008.
