Many companies including Nokia and Research in Motion have been struggling to compete with Apple and manufacturers of devices running Google’s Android software. Here’s a look at how makers of phones and tablet computers are doing.

Google is planning job cuts at Motorola, but says it still could take a few years for Google to turn that business around.

Nokia Corp. reports that its third-quarter net loss widened further to €969 million ($ 1.27 billion) with a 19 percent plunge in revenue, as it struggles against the dominance of Samsung and the iPhone in the tough smartphone market.
