This little juicy rumor came out of left field yesterday. It looks like Deutsche Telekom, the parent company of T-Mobile, is considering a $10.6 billion bid for Sprint. I cannot imagine what they see in Sprint since they are billions of dollars in debt and use totally different technologies but who knows. I can just imagine the merger. A BlackBerry 10000 with 1700Mhz 3G, quad-band GSM, dual band CDMA/EVDO, & maybe even some iDen push to talk goodness.
Maybe T-Mobile is hoping to become more relevant as the 4th largest US carrier by buying the 3rd largest carrier (Sprint). Makes me wonder who the Telegraph’s sources are that leaked this little tidbit.
Still T-Mobile is doing pretty well with their rollout of 3G. They are planning on rolling out HSPA which will offer 7.2mbps speeds this year. Along with that they have announced plans to rollout HSPA+ with 21mbps theoretical speeds in 2010. Now I am really waiting for a T-Mobile BlackBerry 9700 Bold!
Thanks for sending this one in Nikolaus!
