Portable Gamcube rumours return

Seems the IGN briefly had an article up that has since been pulled that had a quote from an IBM source stating that they are shrinking and slowing Broadway (the CPU of the Wii)for a "future Nintendo handheld -- presumably one that plays Gamecube discs."

I can't see it being to play Gamecube games as having a CD drive spinning and Gamecube graphics would kill battery life just like the good old PSP. However I could see it being used in the successor to the DS as Broadway itself doesn't produce much heat, just look at the Wii and the rumours from a while ago that it was offered to Apple for use in a laptop. Hopefully they will use the chip but not discs and therefore have a good battery life, please?
