Opera Makes PDA Browser

News - By: pdaBlast! Staff - October 15, 2002

Opera Software has developed a new Web browser that brings the full World Wide Web to the small screens of PDAs.

The company claims the browser reformats, a standard Web page so it fits on the small screen of phones and PDAs. They say users will no longer have to scroll horizontally to see the full width of the page.

"With Small-Screen Rendering bringing the full HTML-enabled Internet to mobiles, we can finally see the promises of high-speed mobile networks materializing as concrete benefits for everyone," says Jon S. von Tetzchner, CEO, Opera Software ASA. "Content providers will save cost by not having to provide several versions of their sites in different formats like those demanded by today's WAP-technology, operators will get a more attractive product, and all users will finally be able to access their favorite Web sites from their small mobile devices."

Opera is looking to sell the software to hardware makers but no deals have been announced. The company does say however, it expects the first devices with the new browser to be available in the first quarter of next year.

Opera Software has had some following for its low end PC browser although not nearly like Microsoft's Internet Explorer or Netscape.
