Sprint vs Nextel
A valid case can be put forth that iDen would not have survived at an independent Nextel for more than 5-10 years in the future, simply because iDen did not provide the road map to broadband data rates.
GSM as well as CDMA provide those business cases in HSDPA and EvDO respectively.. Hence discounting the fact that different technologies dont matter considering the sprint nextel merger doesnt work.
Hence in all probability Nextel would have bailed out of iDen into one of the other 2 (and my guess wld be GSM if it were independent, since iDen & GSM are more similar) in a half decade or so...
