Deutsche Telekom would hold a majority stake in the new company.

There's been a lot of craziness going on in the mobile sector in recent months. Apple recently hooked up with Verizon with the iPhone 4, Microsoft and Nokia are now partners with Windows Phone 7, and Google's Android OS has been burning up the global smartphone sales charts.

When it comes to wireless carriers, the move to LTE isn't the only big thing that's grabbing headlines these days -- a new report from Bloomberg suggests that Deutsche Telekom AG is considering selling its T-Mobile USA division to Sprint Nextel. When it comes to selling the entire business or just portions of the business, all options are on the table according to Deutsche Telekom.

Discussions are still ongoing as a final valuation on the deal has yet to be agreed upon.

T-Mobile, the fourth largest carrier in the United States, is having a hard time staying afloat in an increasingly cutthroat market. Whereas as wireless competitors like Verizon (largest U.S. carrier) and AT&T (second largest U.S. carrier) saw an overall net gain in customers during 2010, T-Mobile actually lost over 50,000 customers during the same period.

It was leaked today that T-Mobile has plans to launch a new 10GB webConnect data plan for its smartphone users at a cost of $79.99 per month. The new service plan will be available starting March 13. 

Sprint has also been in the news recently following reports that it is considering a move away from WiMAX in order to embrace LTE technology. The adoption of LTE would bring America's third-largest wireless carrier in line with Verizon and AT&T, which have already rolled out LTE in select markets.
