Opera Software to Launch New Versions of Opera Mini and Opera Mobile at CTIA Wireless
Software company Opera Software announced it will launch new versions of the world's most popular mobile browsers, Opera Mini 6 and Opera Mobile 11. The demonstration of brand Web browsers will be held at the forthcoming CTIA Wireless conference.
The new browsers include Opera Mini browser on Android (News - Alert), BlackBerry, Symbian/Series 60 and J2ME phones. The Opera Mobile 11 will bring music on the Android, Symbian, Windows 7 and MeeGo platforms.
“In our lineup, all players are equally important—we leave no device behind. Our small and clever pieces of software will give you a 5-star experience, no matter what hardware you prefer,” said Lars Boilesen, CEO, Opera Software (News - Alert), in a statement.
“Android users actually have two different Opera browsers to choose from: Opera Mini and Opera Mobile. Check them out, and decide which one is on the top of your chart,” Boilesen added.
Opera Software redefined Web browsing for PCs, mobile phones and other networked devices. Opera’s cross-platform Web-browser technology offers performance, standards compliance and small size, while giving users a faster, safer and more dynamic online experience.
Recently, Opera Software announced its partnership with Telling Telecom Development, a mobile phone distributor in China. As part of the agreement, they will set up a joint venture to develop a customized mobile browser for the Chinese market, based on Opera’s technology.
This new venture company will have a registered capital of 135 million RMB ($20.5 million). The capital will be utilized to accelerate both companies’ growth in the Chinese market by combining proven browser technology from Opera with local content, operations and Telling’s unparalleled distribution network within China.
