Opera new kid on the block on I WIT tablets

Opera lands on fun tablets for children

Opera Software today announced a collaboration with I WIT Digital to preinstall Opera Mobile and the Opera Mobile Store on their Android tablets for kids, giving parents a range of fun and free apps for their children.

I WIT, which specializes in designing and producing tablet devices for 3-9 year olds, will bring Opera Software’s mobile web browser and app store to its tablets. I WIT’s colorful tablets are waterproof and shockproof, and aim to help kids learn, talk and play.

The Opera Mobile Store features more than 200 kid-friendly apps, which parents can install to keep their children entertained and stimulated. The apps, specifically designed for kids, include word and memory games, stories, singing, puzzles, drawing, quizzes and math games. There are even loads of free apps for learning the alphabet, animal sounds, shapes and how to play the piano.

The Opera Mobile Store and Opera Mobile browser are preinstalled on I WIT’s I5S and I70 models, for sale in Poland and Russia. The Opera Mobile Store can be accessed via the Speed Dial start page of the Opera Mobile browser.

“Today’s children are interacting with technology earlier, as tablets and devices offer kids new possibilities for learning and discovering the world around them,” says Igor Netto, Business Developer for Mobile, Opera Software. “We are bringing even more learning and fun to I WIT’s tablets by making it easy for parents to install apps, which appeal not only to kids but to app fans of all ages.”

The Opera Mobile Store is the largest cross-platform app store, supporting Android, Java, Symbian and BlackBerry devices. It is available through Opera Software’s flagship Opera Mini and Opera Mobile browsers, which have more than 229 million users worldwide. Opera Mobile and the Opera Mobile Store can be preinstalled by manufacturers on any tablet or mobile.
