AT&T to purchase T-Mobile for 39 Billion USDollars

| March 21, 2011 | 20 Replies

American Network AT&T is to Purchase T-Mobile for $39 Billion.

This creates a GSM Behemoth for the US. What does that mean for Nokia handsets which were destined for T-Mobile? The acquisition will take at least a year to finalize so the Astound/Nuron 2 (+ whatever) should still be coming out. Hopefully this might make things easier for Nokia having to deal with just the one network instead of two. Either that or it could make it more difficult. More iPhone customers definitely.

T-Mobile International is NOT part of T-Mobile USA so things should be staying pretty much the same. In UK, T-Mobile is merged with Orange.
