PortalPlayer vows to regain Apple’s iPod business

During a conference call with analysts after releasing first quarter earnings Tuesday, PortalPlayer CEO Gary Johnson said that the company would “fight back” to regain the lost iPod chip business at Apple. As reported late last month, Samsung was selected over PortalPlayer to supply the new processor chips in future flash memory-based iPods. According to a new report, however, the next-generation video iPod chip business still appears to be up for grabs. “Broadcom, PortalPlayer and Samsung are said to be competing for the next-generation, video iPod socket,” says the EE Times. “In other words, Samsung did not win the entire iPod business at Apple—at least for now.”
