PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Nokia's vice president Bryan Biniak: "We are trying to evolve the cultural thinking [at Microsoft] to say 'time is of the essence'. Waiting until the end of your fiscal year when you need to close your targets, doesn't do us any good when I have phones to sell today." Later Biniak adds: "As a company we don't want to rely on somebody else and sit and wait for them to get it right." There was a simple solution to this problem.

IMO the view inside the industry is not as "dramatic" as you're making it out to be. Most of the issues with SUN's own chips in the past half decade were not due to the choice of fab partner.

And although SUN did indeed rely on TI for most of their own SPARC product, there were still plenty of 3rd party SPARC parts manufactured elsewhere. They are now getting their Niagara parts from TSMC, although they are named Oracle now, not SUN.
