It is smart that Intel made the move to acquire Infineon, since it would have been much tougher if they tried marketing their own wireless business unit by building one from scratch. The foothold they gained has to be leveraged upon, or they will soon lose out again to their competitors. Kevin - http://www.webmarketingfunnel.com

What is the key selling point of Qualcomm btw? Is it power consumption?

Qualcomm chipsets are the best choice in all aspects, as I have tested both. I don't see Intel/infinion as a real competition at this point

It was a smart move by Intel. It gave them a foothold into a growing market where they had no traction.

I'm surprised about this information. I didn't considered Intel to figure in the cellular baseband market. It came even over TI which I'd thought stronger in these regards. And so I read is because of them buying Infineon's wireless division. But I suppose this business unit is a small one for Intel. Intel's main focus is PC processors while Qualcomm's is Baseband and other wireless chips.
