Opera Mini 5.1 now available for Windows Mobile

Posted in Opera Software by Shane McGlaun on September 9th, 2010

When it comes to web browsers many people don’t like the browsers that ship on their smartphones and start looking for alternatives that work better. Opera makes one of the more popular alternate browsers for many of the smartphone operating systems on the market.

I mentioned back in July that Opera Mini 5.1 had landed for Android devices. Opera has now announced that Opera Mini 5.1 is available for download for Windows Mobile users as well. The new venison of the browser adds some nice new features like allowing Opera to be set as the default browser.

Opera Software: ‘Flash makes little sense for video’

Posted in News by Conner Flynn on May 6th, 2010

Now Opera Software has entered the great Adobe Flash v. Apple debate, urging Adobe to embrace open web standards. Speaking with Tech Radar, Opera’s product analyst Phillip Grønvold very diplomatically said that “today’s internet content is dependent on Flash” and “if you remove Flash you do not have today’s internet,” and for that reason Opera needs to support Flash.

Then Grønvold stated that while Flash has its place for things like dynamic content, it “makes very little sense” for video container given the impact on processor and battery usage. He added that “you can cook an egg on [devices] once you start running Flash on them and there’s a reason for that.”

Sony Ericsson’s W205, the newest walkman

Posted in Sony Ericsson by Conner Flynn on April 7th, 2009

Sony Ericsson's W205, the newest walkmanSony’s got a brand new walkman phone dubbed the W205. It will do all the usual stuff like displaying the album art with ID3 tags of the tracks that are playing. Some other features are the Opera browser, speaker phone and Bluetooth. I have to admit it looks pretty good with the 1.8 inch display screen.

The phone also sports a 1.3 megapixel camera with 2.2 X digital zoom and a video recorder. Sadly it’s available only in black. You’ll get a sufficient 5 MB of memory with up to 2GB memory expansion with a M2 card.

Posted in Browsers by Darrin Olson on November 25th, 2008

Opera Mini 4.2 official releaseOpera on Tuesday has announced the final release of the latest and greatest version of its mobile browser, Opera Mini 4.2. We saw the 4.2 version go into beta release only earlier this month sporting some new features including skins, additional servers and faster performance, video and Notes sync.

The final v4.2 release that we downloaded today appears to be very similar, if not exactly the same, as the beta version we got a couple of weeks ago. Opera boasts increased speed of as much as 30 percent, support for multiple languages, the ability to skin the browser to match your preference and of course the ability to play mobile-targeted YouTube videos (provided you have a newer Sony Ericsson or Nokia phone, for now). Users can also sync up notes between the mobile browser and the Opera desktop browser with Opera Link.

Opera Mini 4.2 beta availableOpera has a beta version of the latest Opera Mini browser for mobile devices, boasting some cool new features for on the go, and faster connections for those in the Americas. For starters, Opera Mini 4.2 beta has brought back the skinning features from version 3, allowing a little customization to look of the browser. Users of the newest version of this browser who also have select phones such as a new Sony Ericsson or Nokia might also have some luck getting YouTube to run on it as well.

The new 4.2 browser will also make use of the new servers available in the U.S., making browsing faster for those in the Americas and Asia-Pacific areas. Opera says this will make things faster for those in other parts of the world as well since the new servers will off-load some work from the existing servers. Opera 4.2 also has a feature to sync your notes to your Opera Desktop with Opera Link.

Samsung Partners With Opera for Mobile Web Browser

Posted in News,Opera Software,Samsung,Software by Darrin Olson on December 21st, 2006

Samsung Makes Deal with Opera for Mobile BrowserOslo, Norway – Today Opera Software announced that they are going to partner with Samsung Electronics to offer the Opera Mobile web browser on future Samsung handsets.

Most web sites on the internet are not designed to be viewed on mobile devices with smaller screens, but the Opera Mobile web browser uses Opera’s Small Screen Rendering to format the web pages so that they can be viewed better on the smaller mobile devices, even if the sites were not designed that way. Standard sized web sites have been available for viewing through any mobile web browser, but unless reformatted they are difficult to read and to navigate.

“Our strategies in working closely across the board with major handset manufacturers, operators and directly with end users have made Opera Mobile an attractive product,” says Jon von …
