Opera Software has announced Opera Mobile 8.60, its mobile browser for Symbian Series 60 (S60) mobile phones, based on Symbian OS.
With this new release, Opera is offering its most complete mobile browser to date. Opera Mobile 8.60 for S60 is designed to let users interact more effectively with the Web on their phone, and includes new features to speed up the user interaction through auto-completion of Web addresses and passwords, page toggling and smooth scrolling.
Opera Mobile 8.60 for S60 is designed for the new Symbian 9, S60 3rd Edition phones, featured on handsets such as the Nokia 3250, N91, N80, N71, E60, E61 and E71. It also supports all current Symbian S60 2nd Edition mobile devices.
Users can surf with Opera's Small-Screen Rendering (SSR) technology, which refits Web pages to the width of the mobile screen, or select desktop mode to view the page to look like it would on a PC, with the ability to zoom in and out.
The software introduces an updated user interface with new skin, and allows users to open and toggle up to four windows, each with separate settings for zoom levels and display options.
Users can also read RSS feeds and bookmark/subscribe to these. Images can be save to the phone gallery, or sent as MMS.
