Default AT&T Buys T-Mobile USA

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='' target='_blank'></a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"AT&amp;T Inc. (NYSE: T) and Deutsche Telekom AG (FWB: DTE) today announced that they have entered into a definitive agreement under which AT&amp;T will acquire T-Mobile USA from Deutsche Telekom in a cash-and-stock transaction currently valued at approximately $39 billion. The agreement has been approved by the Boards of Directors of both companies."</em></p><p><em><img src="" /></em></p><p>Earlier in the week, there were rumors of merger talks between Sprint and T-Mobile making them a stronger competitor to AT&amp;T and Verizon. &nbsp;It looks like the rumor stage is as far as that will ever go. &nbsp;Engadget has just reported AT&amp;T has agreed to buy T-Mobile USA for $39 billion. &nbsp;Once the purchase is approved by government regulators and the transaction completed, AT&amp;T will be the only cell provider that uses the GSM standard. &nbsp;</p><p>How does this make those of you who have HD7s or Venue Pros feel? &nbsp;Are you looking forward to or dreading the merger? &nbsp;</p>
