Motorola's CEO, Ed Zander, is taking flak for the company's poor performance and there are growing calls for him to step down.
This follows the fact that the company has missed its targets for three quarters in a row, and news that the important cellular phone division may not be profitable this year.
Previously, poor performance in the cellular handset division were blamed on a policy of "buying" market share – going after increased volume even when that wasn't profitable.
Lately, Zander has cut jobs in the division in an attempt to stem costs, but there is still no sign that it will turn around.
Earlier, news that Zander might resign sent Motorola's share price up 3%, indicating that shareholders might agree with the move.
