The Clearwire-Sprint-Softbank-Dish-Crest-Verizon Ride Is Almost Over, What's Next?

|Includes: DISH, NOK, S, Sprint Corporation (S), SFTBF, VZ

So who out there has been keeping up on the Clearwire(CLWR)-Sprint(NYSE:S)-Softbank(OTCPK:SFTBF)-Dish(NASDAQ:DISH)-Crest-Verizon(NYSE:VZ)-and whoever else fiasco?

I bought Sprint at $2.69 a share and Clearwire at $1.94 a share so no matter what happens I'm happy. Do I have preferences, sure, but I'm already looking at my next money maker (ALU) since this race is almost over.

Back to my original question, I want to throw an idea out there and get some input. Let's get hypothetical for a second and assume that Dish buys out Sprint. They would potentially have a unique value proposition by merging your home and mobile and phone, internet, and video together in a way that no one else in the market currently can.

Put that thought on hold for a sec.


You may or may not know, but every wireless provider and phone manufacture currently have their own custom version of the Android operating system.

Potentially Dish/Sprint could have your satellite TV integrated directly into the operating system without the need of an app. What I would like to hear are thoughts on how a Dish/Sprint merger will set the joint company apart from the Verizon's and AT&T's of the world. Any ideas on what this would mean for Google's (NASDAQ:GOOG) stock? Maybe since Google bought Motorola Mobility they'll release an exclusive feature that could only be found on their phones offered through Dish/Sprint?

Disclosure: I am long ALU, S, CLWR.

Additional disclosure: This is just for some fun speculating.
