Five paragraphs into a 770-word press release, at the end of a paragraph about infrastructure investments in Germany and the U.S., Deutsche Telekom (DT) confirmed Thursday what Merrill Lynch's Scott Craig correctly predicted last week:
"T-Mobile USA has entered into an agreement with Apple to bring products to market together in 2013"
