Opera releases native browser for Windows Mobile

March 4th, 2010 at 1:13 PM

Today, Opera announced the release of its Mini 5 browser for Windows Mobile. Mini 5, which is appended with the “beta 2” tag, supports: tabbed browsing, password management, bookmarks, Speed Dial, and does not require Java to run. The fully native WinMo browser is billed as having much faster page loading times and greater rendering accuracy. Opera brags, “[one of the] major benefits is that it compresses data traffic by up to 90 percent, resulting in significantly improved page-loading and speed.” Those of you with Windows Mobile 5 and 6 can head over to m.opera.com/next/ on your device to try out the new bits. Hit the break for the press release.

Opera Mini goes native on Windows Mobile phones

Oslo, Norway – March 4, 2010

Opera Software today launched a native version of Opera Mini 5 beta for Windows Mobile 5- and 6-based handsets.

By integrating Opera Mini with the Windows Mobile platform, Opera is able to deliver an optimized version of the popular Opera Mini browser that dramatically improves performance and the overall user experience. While Opera Mini traditionally requires Java, the new Windows Mobile version does not, which means that Opera Mini will work on any Windows Mobile phone.

The Opera Mini 5 beta for Windows Mobile includes the same rich feature set as the Java-based version. Renowned features, including tabbed browsing, the password manager, bookmarks and Speed Dial, are built-in to deliver convenience while on-the-go.

One of Opera Mini’s major benefits is that it compresses data traffic by up to 90 percent, resulting in significantly improved page-loading and speed. This results in a dramatically reduced data load, which can translate to lower browsing costs when on a pay-per-MB data plan or when on expensive roaming.

“Windows Mobile deserves a mobile browser that looks better, handles better and delivers better than the default browser,” said Dag Olav Norem, Vice President of Products, Opera Software. “Even though Opera has 50 million satisfied Opera Mini users, we always seek ways to improve our browser for each and every mobile phone user out there. Now, we are pleased to offer the world’s most popular mobile Web browser as a native Windows Mobile application.”
