T-Mobile & Sprint/Nextel May Wed?

The blogging great Om Malik has a rumor about Deutsche Telecom considering buying Sprint/Nextel to combine with it’s US T-Mobile operation. Om and his readers point out some very valid technical concerns about merging the two companies. Combined they support five (yes, 5!) different sorts of networking architectures. I hope the powers that be see the mistakes in this plan before its too late. Otherwise T-Mobile could be in trouble.
