(at least they used to brag about how many PhDs they had on staff some years ago), yet all of their products seem to originate from outside the company. What do those PhDs do (besides provide window dressing PR)?

A Ph.D. certifies that you're really, really good at a really narrow area. Ph.D. holders are often incapable of thinking enough outside their boxes to come up with crazy awesome ideas, but they can be kickass engineers at implementing them.
