Basking Ridge, NJ and San Mateo, CA -- Verizon Wireless announced today that Opera Mini, the ground-breaking mobile browser by Opera Software, is available on select Feature phones, including LG enV2™, LG enV®3, LG enV® TOUCH, Samsung Alias™ 2, Casio® G'zOne Ravine™ and Casio® G'zOne Rock™, with additional devices to be added soon. Opera Mini offers an enhanced user experience for Web browsing -- bringing PC-like Web browsing to select Verizon Wireless feature phones. Using the Opera Mini app, and its unique compression technology, Web pages are delivered to the phones more quickly.
"Getting Opera Mini on the Verizon Wireless network is a big milestone, as we are able to reach Verizon Wireless' vast customer base," said Lars Boilesen, chief executive officer, Opera Software. "We are happy that Verizon Wireless customers will now have access to a superior browser and, in the future, we will be launching more devices with Opera Mini preinstalled."
Verizon Wireless offers Content Filters that let parents manage a safe browsing experience for their children. For more information on Content Filters, visit www.verizonwireless.com/usagecontrols.
Opera Mini, currently available on six devices, will come preloaded later this year as the primary browser on select devices. Customers with feature phones can find the app in the Media Center/Get It Now® or can download it from Verizon Wireless online media store. Customers with Android™ devices can also download the app from Android Market™. There is no subscription fee to access the Opera Mini browser, but data and usage charges may apply during download and use of the application.
