Opera Browser Goes Mobile

Opera Software announced that its Opera smartphone browser will soon become available for Microsoft Windows Mobile software.

Windows Mobile is a new platform for Opera, whose smartphone browsers includes Small-Screen Rendering (SSR) technology to let users browse regular Web pages on small mobile screens.

Opera’s browser technology is cross-platform and modular, and currently available on the following platforms: Windows, Linux, Mac OS, Symbian OS, BREW, QNX, iTRON, FreeBSD, Solaris and Mediahighway.
