yeah it could be read either way, good or bad news for those waiting on a new ViPod.

A good explanation why the 5G would be on the "at risk" list... because of this switchover....

The article I saw (I believe it was on digg) stated that Quanta was slated to be the supplier for the next ipod. Not the current iPod w/ Video, but rather the 6th generation iPod.

considering I already own a video iPod I'm rather un-impressed with the rumors of an "actual" video iPod or whatever their calling it.
So we'll get a bigger screen...umm ok.

But they just said that a design similar to the old 5g was re-sourced. That's bad news

It could also mean that if Apple is planning to introduce an iPod with a larger (wide)screen as has been demonstrated ad nauseam, the current 5G will stick around with at least similar specifications.

I see the rumored video iPod as an augmentation, not necessarily a replacement, but I suppose it will ultimately come down to the consumers.
