Samsung Phones to Feature Opera Mobile Browser

The companies will work together to bring Opera's namesake browser to future Samsung mobile phones.

Opera Software announced Dec. 21 that it is working with Samsung Electronics to make its mobile Web browser available on Samsung cell phones.

The Opera Mobile browser uses Operas Small-Screen Rendering technology to reformat Web pages for better viewing on small screens.

"Samsung is a major handset manufacturer so we expect to provide a great number of mobile phone consumers with Opera Mobile to browse all of their favorite Web sites while on the go," Michelle Valdivia Lien, a spokesperson for Opera, told eWEEK.

Opera Mobile includes a blue highlighting feature that allows users to navigate the Web more easily, as well as Web address auto complete, which delivers suggestions to users based on their bookmarks and history, Opera officials said.

"This partnership benefits Samsung phone users with a superior Web experience so that they can easily and quickly access all of their wanted information from their phone," Lien said.

Opera has not yet announced which Samsung handsets Opera Mobile will work with.
