[Latest Opera Web browser, Opera 8, now available for Windows Mobile.]
Oslo, Norway -- Opera Software today released the latest version of the Opera Web browser, Opera 8, for Windows Mobile, finally enabling Smartphone users to surf the Web with speed and ease on their mobile devices. Opera's deployment to Microsoft's Windows Mobile platform is a result of customers' and operators' demand for a fast and full-featured Web browser on Windows Mobile devices.
"Originally, we had not planned to make Opera available on the Windows Mobile platform, but users kept asking for it because they were disappointed with the far from satisfactory performance of the browser that came shipped on their devices," says Jon S. von Tetzchner, CEO, Opera Software.
Two technical previews of the Opera Web browser for Windows Mobile 2003 Smartphone were released in autumn 2004. The previews were enthusiastically received by 120,000 end-users who downloaded, tested and provided valuable feedback. Opera 8 for Windows Mobile is based on Opera's latest core technology, proving that Opera's embedded deliveries are in synch with desktop browser developments.
Opera 8 for Windows Mobile 2003 Smartphone is available for download from http://www.opera.com/products/mobile. A version for Windows Mobile Pocket PC is under development.
