Tim Hoettges, the CEO of T-Mobile parent company Deutsche Telekom, recently gave an interview where he said that in order to survive in the tough U.S. mobile business marketplace T-Mobile has to find a merger partner that is acceptable to U.S regulators.

The Consumerist reported that Hoettges said he was intrigued by the concept of creating a "super-maverick" wireless competitor with Sprint. But a proposed merger with Sprint failed in the face of strong opposition by the Federal Communications Commission. So Deutsche Telekom's search for a viable partner continues.

Acer has unveiled the new Chromebook C910 and Acer Chromebook C740, which feature durable construction to hold up under rough treatment and include various features to help students complete their schoolwork at home or at school. Both machines will be available starting in February. Specifications, prices and availability will vary by region, according to Acer.

Hewlett-Packard's Personal Systems group introduced eight new mobile devices on Jan. 20. Seven of the new devices are tablets. The company also released a list of optional accessories aimed at enabling enterprises to outfit their employees with fast, modern devices while maintaining administrative control at the same time. Some of the new devices are designed specifically for vertical markets, such as health care and education. 

Intel has acquired small Swiss startup Composyt Light Labs, which is developing connected eyewear. The world's largest chip maker bought the small company, a spinoff of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, known by the acronym EPFL, at the end of 2014, but made the deal public Jan. 20. Intel didn't release any financial details. This acquisition is the latest push by Intel into the booming wearable device market, which IDC analysts last year said will grow from more than 19 million units shipped in 2014 to 111.9 million units in 2018.
