Intel's acquisition of Infineon's wireless business


Linley Gwennap says "Making it clear that money is no object in its quest to become a major player in the smartphone market, Intel plans to acquire the wireless operations of Infineon. The deal is firm but has not yet been announced, as final details are being negotiated. We believe the purchase price exceeds $1.2 billion, ranking it as one of Intel’s largest acquisitions ever. Infineon’s cellular and GPS technology will complement Intel’s Atom processor and Wi-Fi expertise, allowing Intel to deliver a complete solution for the rapidly growing smartphone and tablet-computer markets. But will Intel’s second attempt in the cellular market end better than the first? What do you think about this aquisition? Do you think Infineon's recently acquired technology penetration through partnership with major mobile players is worthwhile to be signed off for the sake of immediate money?
