Oslo, Norway and Tokyo, Japan -- Opera Software and Willcom INC today announced that the Opera Mobile(TM) browser will be offered on the new Sharp W-ZERO3 Microsoft Windows Mobile 5.0 handset in Japan. The Sharp W-ZERO3 is the first Windows Mobile 5.0 device in the Japanese market, and also the first device to ship with Opera Mobile 8.5 for Pocket PC.
With its 3.7 inch VGA (640x480 pixels) high resolution LCD screen and WLAN connectivity, the Sharp W-ZERO3 is ideal for Web browsing on-the-go. Opera's unique rendering technology dynamically adapts Web pages to fit the width of the screen, providing an Internet experience almost identical to that on a larger PC screen.
"We are very happy that Willcom has chosen the Opera browser for their new Windows Mobile 5.0 device," says Jon S. von Tetzchner, CEO, Opera Software. "The Sharp W-ZERO3 with its large screen and the Opera Mobile browser offers users a full-fledged Internet experience that really takes mobile Web browsing up to a new level."
In addition to the large VGA screen, the Sharp W-ZERO3 has a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, comes with Windows Media Player 10, supports all Microsoft Office formats and can display PowerPoint presentations and PDF documents.
