Probably more of a case of ARM looking to expand it's reach for new sockets. If you're already using ARM Cortex-M3 for other stuff, it might just be a smaller leap of faith to go to M4 rather than BlackFin. It wouldn't be the first time that the most popular decision wasn't the best, otherwise Windows wouldn't have dominance.

This sounds very much like the press release from ADI for the Blackfin series of parts. Unless there is an over riding change in cost or power consumption compared to a BlackFin device, why would you change to the Arm part?
