Digitimes has reported that Intel's upcoming netbook platform, known as Cedar Trail-M, will be delayed until November.

The 1.86GHz Atom N2800 and 1.6GHz N2600 ($47 and $42 respectively) were expected to come to devices in September however there have been some issues concerning the graphics driver, which has not passed Windows 7 certification yet.

These new platforms will replace the existing Atom N475 and N455. The CPUs will also feature an integrated GPU that supports Microsoft DirectX 10.1 technology. The platform will also adopt the existing NM10 SouthBridge chip.

Intel also proposed two new chips for nettops, the D2700($52) and D2500($42) but it seems to be that these will be delayed too.
