Oslo, Norway -- Opera Software today announced that its Opera Mini browser is now available on phones enabled with Qualcomm's BREW platform. Built on Opera's technology, Opera Mini has already been embraced by more than 27 million cumulative users who view more than one billion Web pages every month.

Opera Mini provides an excellent user experience by leveraging Opera's Small Screen Rendering (SSR) technology to reformat the Web page to fit inside the screen width. In addition, Opera's new "Desktop Mode" gives users a wider view of the page, displaying Web pages exactly as they appear on the PC. Innovative enhancements such as the Opera Zoom functionality allow users to dive into the page, and dynamically navigate the content, resulting in a more intuitive browsing experience.

With Opera Mini, now available on BREW devices, operators and handset manufacturers will be able to leverage Opera Software's technology to quickly drive feature-rich BREW handsets to the mass market and enable users to access their favorite Web sites from the convenience of their mobile device.

For operators, a turnkey white-labeled Opera Mini solution increases brand loyalty among millions of users worldwide. The leading Indian telecom operator, Tata Teleservices Ltd, was one of the first to realize the advantages of Opera Mini for their BREW handsets.

"We are excited to provide Opera with the ability to extend the offering onto BREW-enabled devices," said Bob Briggs, senior vice president and general manager of BREW for Qualcomm Internet Services. "Opera Mini represents another way that customers can have an enhanced user experience with high speed and content rich Web sites right from their BREW phones."

"Opera consistently aims to improve the quality and performance of mobile Web browsing. By making Opera Mini available on Qualcomm's BREW platform, we are able to offer a fast and cost efficient Web experience to millions of mobile phone users," said Jon von Tetzchner, CEO for Opera Software. "The rapid growth of Opera Mini solidifies Opera's leadership position in the mobile Web browsing space and is further proof of the value that leading operators, such as TATA Teleservices, are finding in our solutions."

"By offering Opera Mini on BREW-enabled handsets, we are able to bring innovative data offerings to our users. Opera has once again proven itself as the pioneer in providing rich and full access to the Web," says Pankaj Sethi, President, VAS & Enterprise Marketing, Tata Teleservices Ltd.

Opera Mini provides:

- Access: Opera Mini allows users to visit popular Web sites for social networking, news, search engines and e-mail from their BREW phones.

- Speed: Like other Opera browsers, Opera Mini is built for speed and has been clocked at more than double the speed of competing mobile browsers, ensuring a positive Web browsing experience.

- Cost reduction: Opera Mini uses a remote proxy server to pre-process Web pages before sending them to mobile phones. Web content is compressed to reduce the size of data transfers, enabling lower bandwidth costs for operators and overall reduction in data costs for end users.

- Local language support: Opera Mini is available in over 50 languages.
