Software giant Microsoft and France Télécom’s mobile arm Orange France have launched a new messaging service that incorporates the US developer’s Windows Live Messenger and combines the functionality of both PC-based and mobile messaging services. The new service, Orange Messenger by Windows Live, will allow users to collaborate between Orange and Microsoft Windows Live Messenger applications and stay connected to contacts on the PC and on their mobile handset. It also will provide connectivity to all Orange portal services, such as e-mails, ringtones, logos and ‘today’s page’. Orange Messenger by Windows Live will be available to French mobile users from December with launches in other European countries starting in 2007.
