T-Mobile Merger a Possibility?

It was reported by Yahoo! Finance, via 24/7 Wall St., that Deutsche Telecom-owned T-Mobile may be the target of a merger with another wireless provider.  T-Mobile is the fourth-largest wireless provider in the U.S., behind AT&T, Verizon Wireless, and Sprint-Nextel.  As the first major wireless company to offer Android-powered handsets in the United States, T-Mobile may face difficulty in the near future as it attempts to keep up with 4G services offered by Sprint and other competitors.

According to the report, T-Mobile’s profits dropped more than $100 million between 2008 and 2009.  They would have to spend a significant amount of money upgrading their existing wireless network to support 4G speeds.  With no network faster than 3G, T-Mobile would miss out on the latest handsets.  Already, the new Samsung Vibrant, part of their ‘Galaxy S’ line of Android phones, could be considered behind the times, as Sprint’s version of the phone, the Epic 4G, is, you guessed it, 4G capable.
