Opera On Smartphones Powered By Windows Mobile

Opera will soon be available for mobile phones powered by Windows Mobile software. Opera uses a neat technology that enables them to view regular pages on the small screen such as a mobile phone.

See press release below.


Opera Software today announced that its revolutionary Opera smartphone browser will soon become available for Microsoft Windows Mobile software. Windows Mobile is a completely new platform for Opera, offering operators, handset vendors, enterprises and end users more choice of platforms that provide outstanding Web browsing on small, restricted smartphone screens.

Opera’s range of smartphone browsers includes Small-Screen Rendering (SSR) technology, an Opera innovation that enables users to browse regular Web pages for the first time on small mobile screens by reformatting the page and thus eliminating the need for horizontal scrolling.

“Operators want to offer their subscribers the same Internet and brand experience on all the different handsets coming from the various manufacturers, necessitating a fully integrated cross-platform browser,” says Rolf Assev, Executive Vice President Business Development, Marketing and Strategic Alliances, Opera Software ASA. “We’ve heard the market’s call, and we’re responding. Opera will soon offer a new Internet experience with Windows Mobile-based Smartphones.”

“Microsoft is excited to see the increased level of innovation and opportunity generated by the broad adoption of Windows Mobile-based devices,” said Mark Spain, director of the Mobile and Embedded Devices Group at Microsoft Corp. “Opera’s support of the Windows Mobile platform delivers more choice to mobile operators and customers and demonstrates the openness of the platform.”
