Today in Mobile

It’s no surprise that the story of the day is actually yesterday’s blockbuster that AT&T has reached a deal to acquire T-Mobile USA from Deutsche Telekom for $39 billion. And there’s plenty of coverage of just about every angle: Om contends that everybody loses in the deal except for the two principal players, Fierce Wireless takes a look at the long-term ramifications in the handset space, and Reuters notes that investors are warning of fallout in the tower sector. Of course, the biggest question in the wake of the announcement is whether federal regulators will approve the tie-up. Already there are cries to block the case on antitrust grounds, but my colleague Stacey Higginbotham notes that the deal could be approved if AT&T agrees to some concessions — like giving up some of T-Mo’s spectrum.
