Opera offers proxy server to reduce content size for mobile browsers
Opera Software introduced the Opera Mobile Accelerator, a proxy-based solution that promisses to increase rendering speed on mobile devices up to 250%. Opera Mobile Accelerator also reduces the amount of transferred data traffic - thereby drastically reducing users' telecom bill.

The service sounds very similar to other offers on the internet, currently available to any browser, including services such as Skweezer, MobileLeap and WebXcope (read our review of these services).

Opera Mobile Accelerator requires that all requested Internet traffic passes through an Opera server, where the Web pages are compressed, stripping out all unnecessary elements before they are downloaded to the handset. Operators can license the Mobile Accelerator directly from Opera.

Opera Mobile Accelerator is available for all Opera users Symbian smartphones UIQ (Sony Ericsson P800/P900) and Series 60 (Nokia 3650, 3660, 6600, 6620, 7610, 7650, N-Gage, N-Gage QD, Siemens SX1, Sendo X)

The service Opera Mobile Accelerator is available by subscription only. For users who pay per kilobyte downloaded, the cost savings can be several times higher than the subscription cost for the proxy.

3 months subscription. Price: EUR 12
6 months subscription. Price: EUR 20
12 months subscription. Price: EUR 30
