Motorola is cutting a fifth of its research staff — about 120 of 600 positions, RCR Wireless News reports. It’s also reassigning another 180 R&D workers within the businesses they support, like set-top boxes, mobile phones, etc.

Meanwhile, we’d love to know what Motorola’s researchers have been doing since the Razr came out in 2004.
