Opera Software is releasing some details on its embedded browser for Sony's mylo personal communication device. Available in the United States in September, the mylo communicator serves as an entertainment and communication device for those who live in Wi-Fi enabled environments.
With the Opera browser, mylo communicator users can surf their favorite Web sites, including popular webmail services such as Yahoo! Mail and Gmail.
Using Opera's Extensible Rendering Architecture (ERA), Opera instantly adjusts Web content to fit the mylo's 2.4 inch color LCD screen, providing a better, more intuitive Internet experience by eliminating horizontal scrolling. The Opera browser for devices maintains full browsing features on devices with fewer resources than a typical desktop computer.
"The mylo personal communicator puts the fun parts of a computer in the palm of your hand," said John Kodera, director of product marketing for personal communication devices at Sony Electronics. "It's ideal for people who want to stay connected to their online friends and family, but not be weighed down by a PC or buffeted by charges for IM and texting on cell phones."
