EETimes.Com: Mystery Chips, No Portal Player, in iPod Nano

EETimes reports on the components in the new iPod Nanos:

Apple Computer Inc.’s new iPod Nano player has three Apple-marked chips of unknown origin, but no chip from PortalPlayer Inc., according to a Wedbush Morgan Securities report discussing a teardown of the long-awaited media player.

They speculate that because flash memory prices have fallen significantly in the last year, that Apple’s profit margins on the new Nanos could be significantly higher than last year’s.
