Since Google already owns a handset company and has many of its businesses operating in the cloud, literally and figuratively, it would make sense for the technology-driven conglomerate to set itself up as a telecom as well.

Absorbing the U.S.'s fourth-largest mobile provider would take up a significant amount of the company's cash, but not all of it.
