Very interesting, I wander if Google will go with the Tegra chip (Same chip used in the Nexus 7) for their upcoming Nexus phone, and if this will effect the release date of the next Nexus phone.

I remember posting this rumor a few months back, sad to see it actually occur as their chips are great.

Hmm. Ti was very friendly to the open source community. Qualcomm has their own drivers and is somewhat anti open source. The more alternatives to qualcomm chips the better.

Google showed us how great these processors are! They were the underdog of the mobile space ( and probably why we can get unlocked Nexus for $350). It was great at resource management, too - although it's hard to tell with LTE.
Motorola Droid -> HTC Aria -> Samsung Captivate -> HTC Surround (wp7) -> Dell Streak -> HTC Inspire -> Motorola Atrix -> Nexus S -> SGS II -> HTC Sensation -> LG G2X -> Motorola Bionic -> Galaxy Nexus running MIUI and Franco Kernal!

Open source processors are going away and that's not good. Hope this works out for TI

Sigh. People should read. Omap is going away for tablets and smartphones. TI doesnt have anything for radios thus their chips cost more to pair with a modem and use more battery going that route.

On another note if TI drops smartphone and tablet SOC's who else uses imagination technologies GPU's. Very much looking forward to Rogue.

This sucks next nexus should have Exynos with A15 instead of tegra 3 or S4 Architecture that would be a beast and it would have great battery life
