Opera connects mobile and desktop worlds
Oslo, Norway and Mountain View, CA – October 25, 2007
Opera, the only company that puts the Web on any device, today released Opera Link. Wherever you are, whatever Opera browser you use, or whichever device you use Opera on, you can instantly access your bookmarks, Speed Dial, and personal bar. Say goodbye to the tedious hassle of entering text in your mobile phone to visit your top sites and say hello to a new level of convenience from device to device. Try Opera Link for yourself at www.opera.com.
The first service to leverage the breadth of Opera’s industry-leading product portfolio, Opera Link forms a key cornerstone of two beta products released today. Opera Link is supported in the high-performance Opera 9.5 beta and the newest beta of Opera Mini 4, the world’s most popular mobile Web browser. There is also a Web interface for users of any browser at my.opera.com. The Opera Web browser for PC/Mac/Linux and Opera Mini are available completely free for anyone to use and enjoy.
“The web provides a key platform for mobilising content across a widerange of devices and web browsers remain the primary portal to thatcontent,” said Tony Cripps, senior analyst, Ovum. “Tighter functionalintegration between browsers running on different devices is a naturaland important extension that will further benefit the user experience ofthe web when away from the PC.”
“We refuse to believe people should compromise their experience when they access the Web from different devices,” said Jon von Tetzchner, CEO, Opera. “With Opera Link, we give them a consistent experience uniquely suited to the way they want to use the Web. But as cool as we think Opera Link is now, we are already hard at work making it even more valuable to our users in the future. Opera Link means convergence without compromise.”
