The New York Times: Google plans to cut 20 percent of its Motorola Mobility workforce and shutter a third of Motorola's 94 offices. That will mean layoffs for approximately 4,000 workers, about a third of whom will be located in the U.S. Already, Google has gotten rid of 40 percent of the Motorola vice presidents.

Google also plans to get Motorola out of unprofitable markets, such as India and parts of Asia. The company will dramatically reduce the number of products it offers, focusing on high-end devices.
