Submission + - Should Apple buy a mobile operator? (framtiden.nu)

Apple controls all part of the iPhone except the mobile data connectivity. Connectivity is expensive and everytime Apple wants to include mobile connectivity they must start negotiating with the mobile operators. In the end, how well AT&T are doing at managing their network affects what price tag Apple can put on the iPhone or iPad. With $40 bn in cash, would it make sense for Apple to buy a mobile operator?
