Opera Software has released Opera Mini 2.0, the new version of their Web browser for mobile phones. The software has been downloaded by over 2.5 million users since its first release in January 2006.
Opera Mini 2.0 further improves the Web surfing experience for any mobile phone user by enabling them to download MP3s, images and other Web content directly to their mobile phone. Additional features include quick and easy mobile shopping, improved design, bookmark speed dials, and more.
Opera Mini now supports seamless mobile commerce via SMS. For example, users can click directly on the Web site to purchase ringtones, games and other content which will then be delivered as an SMS. The charge will appear in the phone bill as an SMS with the price set by the seller. This form of mobile commerce - direct from the browser to SMS - simplifies the transaction for both the business and the consumer.
Opera Mini is also available as a customized browser for businesses that want to reach mobile customers. Operators, broadcasters, mobile content providers, handset manufacturers and others can take advantage of Opera Mini's fast and easy way to make both existing and new content available on all handsets.
