Opera Software has signed an agreement to ship the Opera Mini browser worldwide on Qualcomm’s Brew mobile software platform.
According to the company, incorporating Opera Mini as part of Brew MP simplifies the process of making a web browser available to handset manufacturers.
Consumers will have access to the one of the fastest possible browsing experiences on their mass-market handsets and enjoy a desktop browser-like user interface tailored for smaller handset screens. Owing to the Opera Mini’s compression technology, these benefits are achieved while reducing monthly data charges.
According to Lars Boilesen, CEO, Opera Softwarey, they announced 90.4 million Opera Mini users worldwide recently. With this agreement, millions of consumers will be able to experience a superior mobile browsing experience which is fast and cost-effective. The combination of Opera Mini and Qualcomm’s worldwide reach means they are bringing the power of the Internet to everyone and not just smartphone users.
The Opera Mini browser is one of the world’s most popular mobile browsers, with more than 90 million users.
