Opera to Demonstrate Web Technology at Symbian Smartphone Show 2007

Opera Software, the only company that puts the Web on any device, will showcase the latest in mobile Web browsing technologies at the Symbian Smartphone Show 2007 in London, UK, October 16 – 17, 2007. Using the same rendering engine as the tested and trusted Opera desktop browser, Opera’s mobile products offer users exceptional speed with access to the full Internet including robust Web 2.0 applications with advanced features. Today, Opera’s mobile Web browsing solutions – Opera Mobile and Opera Mini – are deployed on more than 70 million handsets worldwide.

Opera Mobile is the browser of choice for leading smartphone operators and handset manufacturers including Sony Ericsson, Motorola, HTC, KDDI, Kyocera, and many more. Opera Mobile is a proven, versatile and comprehensive solution which delivers high performance browsing on feature rich phones, powering greater end-user online productivity and fueling higher data ARPU. In addition to smartphones, Opera Mobile is deployed on millions of portable Web-enabled devices such as gaming consoles, set-top boxes and media players.

Also featured at the booth will be Opera Mini. With a user base of over 20 million, Opera Mini is one of the world’s top downloaded mobile applications. Opera Mini offers superior performance in environments with limited memory and CPU resources. For operators, a turnkey white-labeled Opera Mini solution, such as T-Mobile’s Web’N'Walk, can provide full Web access without compromise to the widest user base possible. The result is significantly increased data ARPU and lower data delivery costs.

Demonstrations at the Opera Booth (Number 33) will include:

  • A range of latest smartphones, powered by Opera Software, including the Sony Ericsson P1, Motorola Z8, and others.
  • Opera on HTC Ameo featuring Opera Mobile browser
  • Opera on game consoles

“Demand for mobile Internet access is increasing significantly with explosive growth projections in countries such as France, UK, Japan, China and India,” said Jon von Tetzchner, CEO, Opera Software. “Accessing the Internet on a mobile device is no longer a novelty for consumers in the major global economies. It’s becoming a common, everyday occurrence for many people. Avid mobile Web users demand the best possible experience on their handsets. Opera’s solutions continue to be the choice for operators and manufacturers as it enables faster time to market and reduces costs without compromising user experience.”
