Welcome to Microsoft Pri0: That's Microspeak for top priority, and that's the news and observations you'll find here from Seattle Times technology reporter Matt Day.

T-Mobilizing

At 3GSM World Congress a couple of weeks back, T-Mobile International said it had started working more closely with its U.S. counterpart, Bellevue-based T-Mobile USA. That included trying to get bulk discounts on handsets and negotiating other deals on a worldwide basis.

Today, the companies, owned by German telecommunications giant Deutsche Telekom, reported earnings that reflected these efforts.

T-Mobile USA said it added 1.4 million customers in the fourth quarter for a total of 21.7 million. For the full year, it posted a profit of nearly $4 billion, including a $2.4 billion tax credit. The company’s revenues totaled $11 billion in 2005, up from $9 billion a year ago.

Rene Obermann, CEO of T-Mobile International, acknowledged the two companies’ renewed partnership in a statement: “T-Mobile USA once again delivered outstanding results and continues to be a top driver of growth for the mobile segment and Deutsche Telekom as a whole. We look forward to further leveraging the global scale and skills of T-Mobile and Deutsche Telekom across both sides of the Atlantic.”
