Opera and Motorola in agreement to offer WAP and HTML browser for mobile phones
Opera Software and Motorola's Global Software Group (GSG) have entered into an agreement to deliver a joint product offering consisting of Opera's "full" HTML browser software and the WAP stack from GSG's browser software, creating a single application for mobile phone browsers.

Opera's full HTML browser provides desktop functionality on a mobile phone. The combination with GSG's WAP stack allows the Opera browser to work in the WAP environment. This joint product offering gives operators the benefit of their existing investment in current WAP infrastructure, and at the same time the benefit of an HTML browser. The product offering is designed to work on operators' existing WAP infrastructure while enabling the revenue-driving HTML content that is now basic to the embedded devices marketplace. Opera and GSG will each license the combined product offering to operators. Opera will also license Motorola's WAP Browser and MMS device client to customers as individual products.

"We are set to propel mobile browsing into the full Internet," says Jon S. von Tetzchner, CEO, Opera Software. "Today's agreement allows Opera to let operators and handset manufacturers gain revenue from past investments in WAP technology while embracing the numerous possibilities in what is new to mobile browsing."

"We are pleased that together we can bring to market a cellular phone browser product that provides full HTML Internet access in a WAP environment," says Amreesh Modi, vice president, systems solutions and products division, at Motorola GSG. "Now we can meet the needs of high-end, high-functionality, smart phone users, as well as voice-centric phones users."
