Deutsche Telekom aka T-Mobile to buy Sprint Nextel? Probably, not.

The last few weeks have created a buzz about Sprint Nextel being done, finished, hasta luego, etc...whatever..
Because DT previously looked at buying Sprint Nextel, rumors once again resurface. The problem is even though together they would create the second largest US carrier, they are completely different networks. Sprint with CDMA, Nextel with iDen, and T-Mobile with GSM...
This would create gigantic problems for DT if it went through. It would take billions to convert Sprint and Nextel to GSM and also stop its completely crazy random WiMax-ness through CLEAR.

So, probably wont go through...but T-Mo might pick up a smaller company to improve its platform......
