NVidia Graphics Chip for Next Generation Video iPod Delayed?

EETimes reports on comments by Satya Chillara, an analyst with Pacific Growth Equities LLC about NVidia's role in Apple's "next-generation video iPod line".

This same analyst originally reported in July that NVidia had edged out Broadcom for the contract to supply Apple with the graphics chip for their next-generation Video iPod.

This new report now claims that NVidia has delayed the upcoming Video iPod graphics chip which was originally scheduled to tape out in the 1st quarter (calendar year) of 2007. Instead, the chip tape-out has been pushed to Q2 or Q3 (calendar year) of 2007. While the article comments about the negative impact this may have on NVidia financially, it is unclear how this affects Apple's plans for their next generation video iPod.

Rumors of a full-screen Video iPod have been persistent since early 2006 with increasing evidence that Apple is indeed working on such a project.
