Opera Software announces the arrival of a Opera Mobile browser for MIPS-based Android devices:
MIPS Technologies, a leading provider of industry-standard processor architectures and cores for digital home, networking and mobile applications, and Opera Software have worked together to optimize the highly popular Opera Mobile browser for MIPS-based Android mobile devices.
The Opera Mobile browser is the leading third-party browser on the Android platform, with smooth browsing, data compression using the Opera Turbo feature, and industry-leading HTML5 support. Highlights from the new Opera Mobile Labs release include advanced HTML5 and WebGL support.
MIPS and Opera will demonstrate the Opera Mobile browser running on new MIPS-Based Android 4.0 “Ice Cream Sandwich” tablets during Mobile World Congress (MWC) being held February 27 — March 1, 2012, in Barcelona, Spain. Consumers who already have an Android tablet or phone running on a MIPS-Based chip now have the power of Opera Mobile available for download.
“Opera provides more than just a browser — the company’s technology provides a window to the World Wide Web, as well as web-based services and apps. With a long experience in HTML5 support, Opera gives an outstanding web experience, now available also on MIPS-based mobile devices,” said Gideon Intrater, Vice President of Marketing, MIPS Technologies.
“Opera and MIPS have collaborated on the TV platform for a long time, and, now, we’ve decided to work together also to give people a great experience on mobile products,” said Lars Boilesen, CEO, Opera Software. “We invite MWC attendees to visit our booth and see the amazing result we’ve achieved by optimizing our browser for MIPS-based Android mobile devices for the first time.”
