No Windows RT tablets with TI chips

Neowin received confirmation from Texas Instruments that the company's OMAP chips will not be used by any Windows RT devices. TI decided to refocus ion embedded applications with long life cycles, and is no longer making chips for smartphones and tablets.
In a press release today, TI revealed that the company will now " ... focus its OMAP processors and wireless connectivity solutions on a broader set of embedded applications with long life cycles, instead of its historical focus on the mobile market where large customers are increasingly developing their own custom chips." These changes also mean that 1,700 people in the company will now be laid off.

TI announced in June 2011 it would launch its OMAP4470 processor, which it said would run "operating systems such as Android, Linux and the next version of Microsoft Windows." It reconfirmed those plans for the processor in January at CES 2012. In June, as part of Computex, TI actually showed some prototype Windows RT tablets running on its processor.
The announcement means NVIDIA and Qualcomm will be the sole ARM-based players left in the Windows RT chip market.
