Oslo, Norway -- Opera Software and T-Mobile today introduced the new Nokia 6680 with the Opera browser as part of T-Mobile's "Internet in your pocket" offering available in July 2005. Powered by the fast and popular Opera browser, the Nokia 6680 couples mobile telephony with full Web access, and is the first 3G phone available in T-Mobile's "Internet in your pocket" line.
"More and more operators are requesting the Opera browser on their handsets," says Jon S. von Tetzchner, CEO, Opera Software. "With Opera's Web browser, T-Mobile can offer their subscribers the full Internet on their mobile phones, as well as quickly roll out new and advanced mobile services that dramatically increase the phone's usability and average revenue per user (ARPU)."
The idea behind the "Web'n'Walk" offering is to give people unrestricted access to the full Internet and Web-based services when on-the-go, and is part of T-Mobile's initiative to grow data services into a mass market. Web'n'Walk takes full advantage of Opera's Web browser to give people the same access to their favorite Web sites, e-mail and instant messaging on their mobile phone as on their regular PCs. With its unique Small-Screen Rendering technology and remarkable speed, the Opera browser on the Nokia 6680 provides a compelling full Web experience on a mobile device.
In addition to Opera's mobile Web browser, the Nokia 6680 comes with a complete set of features including calendar, address book, MP3 player, 1.3 megapixel camera, photo/video editing software and e-mailing capabilities.
Availability: The Nokia 6680 through T-Mobile's "Internet in your pocket" offering is first available in Germany and Austria in July 2005.
