Opera Software has announced that its Opera smartphone browser will soon become available for Microsoft Windows Mobile based Smartphones as well. Windows Mobile is a completely new platform for Opera which was available for Symbian based phones only so far.

Opera's range of smartphone browsers includes Small-Screen Rendering (SSR) technology, an Opera innovation that enables users to browse regular Web pages for the first time on small mobile screens by reformatting the page and thus eliminating the need for horizontal scrolling.

"Operators want to offer their subscribers the same Internet and brand experience on all the different handsets coming from the various manufacturers, necessitating a fully integrated cross-platform browser," says Rolf Assev, Executive Vice President Business Development, Marketing and Strategic Alliances, Opera Software ASA. "We've heard the market's call, and we're responding. Opera will soon offer a new Internet experience with Windows Mobile-based Smartphones."

That's good news at all. I've used the Opera browser a lot when I was testing several Series 60 devices in the past and it's - I have to admit - the best mobile browser yet! The speed, rendering and feature support is amazing and I will be the first to buy it if available!

Cheers ~ Arne
