Windows on ARMA few days ago, Texas Instruments strongly hinted, in an email statement to Neowin, that the company would not be releasing any processors that would be used for tablets running on Microsoft's Windows RT operating system. Today, the other shoe dropped as the company officially announced its exit from the smartphone and tablet chip business.

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.
