Software announced yesterday, that its
Opera Mobile 10
browser is now also available for Google's Android platform. Following the
previous (public Beta)
release for Windows Mobile, Opera Software released the final version of
Opera Mobile 10 to operators and OEMs only. This direct-to-distributor version
is available on Android,
smartphones and includes Opera's new, cross-platform UI framework. As a part of
Opera's shift to unify the look and feel of its mobile browsers, the
cross-platform UI framework allows operators and OEMs to implement the same user
experience quickly and cost-effectively across their entire range of handsets.
Opera's cross-platform UI framework is built on top of the browser engine.
This allows it to work seamlessly on all platforms running Opera Mobile or Opera
Mini. This framework is tailored for efficient execution of dynamic user
interfaces for Web browsers. Opera's cross-platform UI framework empowers
operators and OEMs to deploy one browser UI to a wide range of devices, with
minimal integration. The result is a unified, consistent Internet experience for
the end users and time and cost savings for the operators or OEMs.
Opera Mobile 10 comes packed with features to make mobile Web surfing easier,
including tabs, Speed Dial and password manager. Today's release for operators
and OEMS on the major platforms opens up the Opera experience to more people, on
Neither Opera Software nor any of today's Android ODMs have unveiled plans,
which smartphones might carry Opera Mobile 10 soon. Also no plans where
announced yet, if Opera Mobile 10 will be released as a public version through
the Android Market.
