As has been discussed before, to have a custom chip built in the technologies used in cell phones, it has to be very high volume to offset the design and tooling costs. An FPGA that meets the low power requirements could stay in the socket indefinitely. They would then have the freedom to make changes quickly as market conditions change.

Maybe the point would be to build early prototypes, win some customer business, and then dump the FPGA and go make a real chip :)
