Under the deal, Apple does not have to actually buy any Freescale chips "other than work in progress that was in place at the time the agreement was executed." This seems to mean that it is pretty much wide open to buy what it likes and when it likes.
This all seems a little bit in conflict with what Apple said in June, which was that X86 microprocessors would "permeate the entire Macintosh product line by the end of 2007". But then you never know what is getting discussed behind closed doors.
