Opera Browser Now Available for Pocket PC
Opera Software has released Opera Mobile 8.6 for Windows Mobile, offering Pocket PC owners a fast and user-friendly Web surfing experience on their devices. Opera Mobile 8.6 for Pocket PC takes full advantage of the larger screen and higher resolution of Pocket PC devices by offering tabbed browsing and surfing in horizontal landscape mode.

The browser is based on Opera's newest core code and runs on Windows Mobile 5 and Windows Mobile 2003 SE. Opera Mobile for Pocket PC is available on-line and comes with a free 30-day trial.

The first operators to ship Windows Mobile devices with Opera Mobile pre-installed are T-Mobile through their Web'n'Walk offering, and the leading Japanese operator, Willcom.

Features in Opera Mobile 8.6 for Pocket PC include:
  • Tabs (Open multiple Web pages at the same time, and switch between them using the tabbed interface)

  • Landscape/Portrait Mode (Opera Mobile adapts Web pages to fit the width of the screen in both landscape and portrait modes)

  • Web address auto-complete (The browser remembers your typed-in addresses)

  • Zoom (Magnify text and images in Web pages for better accessibility)

  • Download (Get any files and content from the Web, including ringtones and images)

  • Full screen (View Web pages with the browser interface, or in full screen mode)

  • Fit-to-screen (Browse Web pages in full size or with Opera's Small-Screen Rendering(TM) to avoid horizontal scrolling)

  • Pop-up handler (Block unwanted pop-ups)

  • Pad-lock icon on secure sites (The browser can identify trusted sites to avoid scams and phishing attempts)
