Opera launches web browser for Nokia Series 60

Posted on Monday, October 27 2003 @ 12:24:40 CET by

Today Opera Software made a new and improved version of their Opera web browser available for Nokia mobile phones.Their previous version was only for the Nokia 6600 but this one works on all phones based on the Series 60 platform : Nokia 3650/7650/N-Gage. Opera 6.1 for Series 60 is much smaller and uses less memory than its predecessor. According to them this version uses approx 250 KB less RAM.

  Series 60 is built upon Symbian OS, and is Nokia's target platform for data-centric mobile phones, so-called smartphones. Series 60 phone owners can enjoy the full, open Internet in a meaningful way for the first time with Opera's Small-Screen Rendering (SSR) technology that reformats Websites to fit on small screens.

"It's wonderful to have the opportunity to share with our many users the progress we've been making in the smartphone space," says Jon S. von Tetzchner, CEO, Opera Software. "Opera 6.1 for Series 60 offers an unparalleled Internet experience for a mobile device."

Opera 6.1 for Series 60 includes an array of new features and improvements that all contribute to making Opera even more compelling for surfing from smartphones. Apart from the smaller size and less memory usage, surfers can enjoy a new menu interface; improvements in SSR, especially in the handling of frames and numeric tables; along with several bugfixes.

Opera has also localized the S60 browser for the first time, the version is available in English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Chinese traditional and Chinese Simplified.

Opera his web browser software is available for free on the Nokia 6600. Other Series 60 phones from Nokia can download it from Opera his website. They can try out a free trial version which only lasts for 14 days. After the trial period it can be bought for 29USD (25EUR)
