Infineon, Intel in talks over mobile unit: report | Reuters.

Infineon and Intel were not immediately available for comment.

Munich-based Infineon, which supplies chips for Apple’s (AAPL.OiPad as well as components for Nokia (NOK1V.HE), Samsung (005930.KS) and Research in Motion (RIM.TO), is unsure whether a divestment makes sense, the paper said.

Some analysts have said it would make sense for Intel to buy Infineon’s wireless business, but Infineon Chief Executive Peter Bauer told Reuters in March he saw no reason why the chipmaker should not try to further develop the business.

While the mobile phone chip business is likely to be a growth driver for Infineon, it may be sub-scale when compared with other rivals such as ST Ericsson (ERICb.ST) and Qualcomm (QCOM.O), FTD said.
