As already revealed earlier this week by the::unwired, it's official now that Opera is the preferred browser vendor for T-Mobile's web'n'walk Windows Mobile Smartphones: Opera Software and T-Mobile agreed on equipping the new T-Mobile SDA II Windows Mobile Smartphone with the Opera browser as part of T-Mobile's web'n'walk offering. The SDA II is the first commercial deployment of the Opera browser for the Windows Mobile 2003 Smartphone platform, following its public release on June 30, 2005.
"This release is remarkable because it is a testament to the superior speed and quality of Opera," says Jon S. von Tetzchner, CEO, Opera Software. "T-Mobile has chosen Opera on several phones to fulfill the promise of their web'n'walk offering, and we are happy to bring the unparalleled Opera Web experience to T-Mobile's customers."
T-Mobile's SDA II sports a large (320x240 pixels) QVGA display and comes fully loaded with all the typical Windows Mobile applications such as e-mailing, Mobile Office and a media player in addition to the Opera Web browser.
web'n'walk is an initiative to grow data services into a mass market by giving people unrestricted access to the full Internet and Web-based services on their mobile phones. T-Mobile has chosen the Opera browser to fulfill the promise of full Web access on several handsets.
