People familiar with the matter told Bloomberg that the two companies haven't yet started negotiations, but that AT&T is "intensifying work" rose gold marble iphone case on which of Voda's assets it could snaffle in a deal, and who would buy the others, And if that doesn't work out, AT&T has got UK 4G pioneer EE in its sights, too, according to the source, So either way, the Americans are coming, I've "reached out" (as the Americans say) to AT&T and Vodafone for comment, and will update this story if they "circle back"..
If the two companies were to merge, then by sales, they would form the world's largest telecommunications operator. With more than 500 million customers worldwide, it would likely be in a stronger position to negotiate better subsidies from the likes of Google and Apple to offer their handsets, too. Which would hopefully mean lower prices for us punters, but don't hold your breath for that. It's not the first time AT&T has eyed up Vodafone.

A couple of KitKat ROMs for the Galaxy Nexus have popped up over at XDA Developers. They're 100 per cent unofficial of course, so as ever with these things, you install at your own risk. The first is called A Taste of KitKat, by someone called Grarak. It's had some pretty positive feedback at XDA Developers, and most features seemed to work, except the Wi-Fi. But that's been fixed now, according to Coolsmartphone. The graphics aren't perfect though. You can see the scratchy lines across the screen, like interference on an old-style telly. This is due to the Texas Instruments chipset that's not supported anymore, and is one of the reasons Google didn't bring KitKat to the Galaxy Nexus.
