Orange Denies T-Mobile Bid

8:30 AM -- The speculation continues to swirl around the consolidation prospects for the U.K.'s five mobile operators, now that Orange (NYSE: FTE) has denied a report in The Observer that it made a bid for T-Mobile (UK) that was rejected by Deutsche Telekom AG (NYSE: DT). (See T-Mobile Preps UK Revamp and Downturn Smacks Deutsche Telekom .)

First reported here by Reuters, a France Telecom spokesman also tells Unstrung, "We have made no offer on T-Mobile and have not been approached to do so."

For now then, it seems orange doesn't match with T-Mobile's cherished magenta.
