Awesome. I can't wait to see what will come out of this chipset! Our only hope is that this chipset becomes a success and TI perhaps reconsiders leaving the mobile phone market. I disagree with their decision to pull the plug on manufacturing mobile chipsets and actually do not understand how they came to the conclusion that they were unsuccessful in the marketplace. Google chose their chipset for it's Galaxy Nexus device and Motorola has a longtime history of choosing TI chipsets.

that's good news, I really don't want them to go, they're the most dev-friendliest and open-source chipsets out there.

I think, compared to other manufacturer's offering, TI's OMAP is cheaper yet powerful enough to compete with others. And the graphics processors are awesome. Also, it's developers-friendly processor because there's a lot of support coming from TI.
*based on my own opinion, you can correct me if i'm wrong :)

I am so relieved. The 5430 goes into my dreamphone and the 5432 goes into my dream tablet. I really hope they have amazing sales sms reconsider leaving the mobile processor business. I think they still have lots to offer.
