Following the positive reception and rapid market adoption of Opera Mobile for
the Windows Mobile platform, Opera took strides to continue providing Smartphone
and Pocket PC users with a superior Web-browsing experience. Today's release,
Opera Mobile 8.65 for Windows Mobile, is the culmination of user feedback and
beta testing results to further enhance the Web-browsing experience on Windows
