They announced all this awhile back and said they would still make the omap 5 line.

You'll see them, it's just that they will be their last mobile SoCs. Saddly enough.

Oh....Sammy this is great news, more for you to built. Now lets get Intel and Apple out of the picture forever, and then the Universe, cry of Korean lovers (Samsung); frankly, we hate Apple, and you Sammy dear, are creating some many jobs in the US. I rather be unemployed, as long as I have your quad core next to me keeping me warm.
