Texas Instruments says the death of OMAP has been greatly exaggerated

TI is pushing back against stories that it's leaving the mobile chip market, but is it substance or just PR spin as they gear up to deliver the OMAP 5 to mobile OEMs...

Well, what would articles concerning mobile technologies be without hyperbole?

You did a hell of a job :P

OMAP5 is gonna hit market soon - I hope to see few phones with it - at least few tablets. OMAP has already been in the automotive market. 'Shifting focus' meant a change in priority not complete riddance - these news blogs get ridiculous sometimes. I'm pretty sure if OMAP 5 does well TI will shift focus again.

What bugs me is that at the very core they are an analog chip maker and has a true monopoly in that market. So one day they might really say goodbye to digital market as profit margin is very low there. I hope that won't happen soon :)

yeah, i mean even Google saw the OMAP's value when they made the 4th iteration the official reference platform for ICS. without TI Qualcomm will probably corner the market.

Another suicidal "burning platform".

I think now TI must put forward a time table for future OMAPs to keep the customers with the platform.

i really dont understand why they exit mobile chip.. i mean they are still on top but not on top spot!

i mean the only thing that they are afraid of the competition is that they maybe are an expensive chip maker! coz even though mediatek and STEricson isnt big they're not even popular they still dont exit mobile chips!
