Our compadres over at Phone Scoop have it on good word that Motorola will cut up to half of their handset division in an upcoming round of layoffs. This move wouldn’t surprise us considering the number of lackluster devices to come out of the company since the popular RAZR was released. All other divisions of Motorola seem to be in the clear.

Phone Scoop also learned that Motorola will not have a booth at this year’s Spring CTIA event, which takes place in Las Vegas. The last tidbit and quite possibly the most important is that Motorola will reduce the number of handsets released per year down to roughly one dozen. And all smartphones going forward will run the Android OS.
