Various Orange services will become integrated into the MeeGo mobile operating system after a deal was struck with Intel.
MeeGo has only been on the horizon since February and is the result of a collaboration between Intel and manufacturer Nokia.
Orange will be making its mapping and mobile TV applications available on future MeeGo-based smartphones, which will then be packaged with pay monthly tariffs for UK customers to enjoy.
The mobile phone carrier will also be offering its services on other MeeGo-based devices, such as netbook computers, all of which will be powered by one of Intel's Atom family of mobile processors.
The plan is to allow multiple MeeGo devices owned by the same person to be easily synchronised, sharing the data and making it accessible from everywhere.
Orange's Yves Maitre said: "With the increasing number of phones and operating systems for customers to choose from, it is our role to make sure our customer's journey into this richer mobile multimedia environment is simple and easy."
