VIA and NVIDIA Netbooks: Unlikely, Plus No More New Apple Hardware in 2008

VIA Nano Logo It looks like NVIDIA and VIA Technologies won’t be working together on VIA Nano netbooks, as well as Mobile Internet Devices (MIDs) according to a report by DigiTimes.

Earlier this year, they had agreed to work on netbooks powered by C7-M and Nano CPUs produced by VIA, controlled by NVIDIA’s MCP79 chipsets (complete with integrated graphics).

Meanwhile, Macworld spoke with Apple and got a confirmation that Apple will not be releasing anymore new Mac hardware this year. An Apple spokesman, Bill Evans, told Macworld “Our holiday line-up is set,”.

Most of the rumors had to do with iMacs and Mac minis, but there were a few floating around concerning an Apple netbook.
