It wasn’t so long ago that many people wondered how on earth Opera Software was ever going to make money with its Opera web browser. Let’s face it, the world hardly needs yet another web browser.
Opera mobile in action
However, it’s becoming very apparent that there is a plan, with the company recently announcing that Samsung Electronics has signed an agreement to deliver Opera Mobile on Samsung mobile handsets.
Opera Mobile is Opera Software’s standards-compliant Web browser for advanced mobile phones. The browser uses Opera’s Small Screen Rendering technology to reformat Web pages for viewing on a small screen and allows users to navigate Web pages with intuitive vertical scrolling.
“Our strategies in working closely across the board with major handset manufacturers, operators and directly with end users have made Opera Mobile an attractive product,” said Jon von Tetzchner, CEO, Opera Software.
“We’re proud that Opera Mobile is today’s choice for Web browsing on the latest Samsung mobile handset because of its winning user experience and form factor adaptation.”
The Opera web browser is now also available for the Nintendo’s new Wii games console, and apparently this is all part of a plan to show the world what Opera is capable of:
“We are thrilled to have the opportunity to deliver our browser to Wii and let the world see what Opera is capable of on a game console, said von Tetzchner.
“Wii users will enjoy navigating the Web with the flick of the Wii Remote while viewing their favorite content with ease from the TV screen. We are proud of our product and are working hard to make the final version of Opera as revolutionary as the Wii itself.”
Opera Software has launced a splash page for users accessing this site from a Wii console.
My Opera for Wii will feature gaming news provided by Gamespot, spotlight My Opera gaming enthusiasts and groups, as well as provide links to forums about gaming and Nintendo products.
This page is only accessible from Wii. For more information, visit http://my.opera.com.
