Of course they're under-investing in multimedia, their entire strategy is based around slim modems for 3G/4G! See their MWC09 presentation, which I coincidentally linked on my Twitter yesterday: Whether that's the best strategy is arguable, but it certainly has potential and Infineon wouldn't have the money to invest more in multimedia/app processors now anyway. As for connectivity, they have a great GPS solution and leading FM integration - the only place they really lag is Bluetooth. There's not a lot to be gained by integrating that, but I agree it would be desirable for them to invest in it anyway. Which they might be, for all I know...

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
