Marvell already had a contract snatched from under its nose in March this year, again by Texas Instruments.
According to our sources at the time, it was a last minute U-turn before RIM left it hanging.
RCR Wireless' Sylvie Barak says the Blackberry 9900 will be running on Texas Instrument's OMAP SoC. Quite a knocking for poor old Marvell, then - with one employee admitting to Barak under condition of anonymity that "it's a painful hit to us."
RIM also confirmed to RCR that the new range will be running on TI designs.
