3:00 PM -- Orange (NYSE: FTE)'s Orange has joined forces with Google (Nasdaq: GOOG) to make it easier for mobile customers to get to Internet content on their handsets -- well, Google and Orange content, to be precise.

Orange will add Google's Mobile App to the home screens of Android phones it sells in France, Spain, and the U.K., giving users access to Orange's mobile portal and Google's search and other services from one click on the device. Google search results will bring up content from Orange's own mobile portal as well.

Later, the Google app will be added to phones based on Symbian Ltd. 's S60, BlackBerry 's Blackberry OS, and Microsoft Corp. (Nasdaq: MSFT)'s Windows Mobile operating systems.

Orange claims to be the first mobile operator to integrate the search giant's mobile app onto its home screens.
