Opera made available its smartphone browser to owners of the Nokia 7650 and Nokia 3650, based on the Series 60 Platform. For the first time, owners of these phones can now access the full Web from their smartphones. The release was met by a rush of visitors to www.opera.com, and Opera's Series 60 browser has already surpassed its Mac OS counterpart in popularity.
Opera's breakthrough Small-Screen Rendering (SSR) technology has made the full Web available on smaller smartphones for the first time. Before Opera introduced SSR, phone users were restricted to use stripped-down WAP browsers based on XHTML for which there is not much content available. SSR massages Web pages to fit on a smaller screen, eliminating horizontal scrolling, making the full Web useful on small screens.
Nokia 3650 users can try the Opera for Series 60 browser for free for a trial period of 14 days. Users can purchase the browser for only EUR 19.95 for a limited time. (Regular price EUR 39)
