BenQ Includes Opera on Upcoming P30 Smartphone
BenQ decided to include Opera Smartphone Edition on their Symbian-based P30 smartphone. The P30 has a 16-bit touchscreen that sports a resolution of 320x208 pixels. Harrison Chang, Senior Associated Vice President of BenQ promissed: "By including Opera we gain a competitive edge with operators and users, the P30 offering everything a mobile operator can dream about in a device."

Opera is fun for both users and operators, data proving that GPRS traffic goes through the roof when Opera is included on a handset.

"The combination of a good-looking handset like the P30 and Opera will result in a winner in the market place," says Rolf Assev, executive vice president strategic alliances, Opera Software. "Operators can now significantly raise their average revenue per user, while simultaneously providing their subscribers with a fun and useful Web experience"

The BenQ P30 is scheduled for delivery in Q1 2004. Opera's delivery is based upon Opera's 6.2 code base on Symbian OS v.7.0 and the UIQ platform.
