"Microsoft is negotiating distribution deals with Sprint PCS, AirTouch and others to boost its technology in the rapidly expanding market for wireless devices, according to an email received by CNET News.com.
A 'major deal' with British Telecom and AT&T also is in the works, according to the email, which was inadvertently sent to a CNET editor late today.
"We're in discussions for a major deal with these companies," the email said, referring to British Telecom and AT&T. 'This is still highly confidential.' The email did not provide details, but investments were not mentioned."
