Motorola's head of consumer mobile products, Rob Shaddock, has resigned from the company.
Shaddock's resignation is only the latest episode in a long-running saga for the company, which is preparing to spin off its mobile devices division. It is understood that the senior vice president handed in his resignation on Monday. According to Silicon Alley Insider, he will replaced by a longstanding Motorola veteran, John Cipolla.
Industry insiders told ZDNet.co.uk on Wednesday that Shaddock had once almost resigned at some point in the past but had been persuaded to stay on. It is not yet known whether this week's resignation has anything to do with the recent ascension to the stewardship of Motorola's devices division by ex-Qualcomm executive Sanjay Jha.
