AT&T Buys T-Mobile for $39 Billion

Does this mean iPhone / iPad might be coming too?

With the announcement earlier today that AT&T has purchased T-mobile for $39 billion, will this leave the door open for the "budget" carrier to carry the iPhone and iPad? I am guessing it would be the only thing making the merger an actual consumer success - seeing as many people (at least that I know) hate the service provided by AT&T so much that they left (including myself). In a perfect world we could have the fabulous service of T-mobile with the awesome devices of AT&T. I guess we will have to see what happens with the regulatory approval before this question can really be answered. This might take awhile.
