Update: Bloomberg is reporting Dan Hesse will step down and be replaced in an announcement tomorrow, during which the plan to end pursuit of T-Mobile will also be discussed.

This one's short and sweet, folks: Sprint has dropped its efforts to purchase T-Mobile according to the Wall Street Journal, citing the perpetually present "people familiar with the matter." According to said persons, SoftBank and Sprint decided the merger would simply be too difficult to accomplish in the face of federal regulators, an experience AT&T became all too familiar with back in late 2011, to the tune of a $4 billion severance fee.

Sprint Updates Its HTC One M8 To Android 4.4.3, Throws In Wi-Fi Calling For Good Measure

Dedicated Android fans will probably be a little disappointed that the latest update to HTC's One M8 flagship on Sprint doesn't include the bleeding edge 4.4.4. But it's pretty close, 4.4.3, and Sprint has thrown in a couple of notable expansions specifically for its network.

The Sprint LivePro Is An Android-Powered Mini Projector, Mobile Hotspot, And External Battery All In One Weird Little Package

The convergence of multiple devices can be a good thing. After all, who wants to carry a bunch of different stuff around when a single thing will do?
