UK mobile phone giants T-Mobile UK and Orange are to merge, their parent companies have said.
The deal between Orange owner France Telecom and Deutsch Telekom's T-Mobile UK will create a firm with revenues of almost 10bn euros, the firms said.
The merged firm would have about 37% of the UK mobile market - overtaking the current leader, Telefonica's O2.
It is the second large corporate deal in two days after a Kraft Food's £10.2bn takeover proposal for Cadbury.
If you have a corporate BlackBerry smartphone, you might be interested to know that the Google Apps team has just made the Google Apps Connector for BlackBerry Enterprise Server available for download.

If you manage IT for your organization, you'll want to read the Enterprise team's blog post that details the Google Apps Connector.
If you don't manage IT but you want your company to adopt Google Apps and the Connector for BlackBerry Enterprise Server, tell your IT team that it's time to "Go Google".
