The mobile application was made available for the handset vendor’s users through the Samsung Apps portal, the dedicated application store that the company launched for them.
, a mobile browser capable of providing users with a great internet navigation experience at all times, can also offer important cost savings, courtesy of the page compression technology that it features.
Samsung users interested in downloading the Opera Mini application will be able to do so either directly accessing the app portal through their devices, as well as via Samsung Kies - the PC software that connects the company’s handsets to any Windows computer - or online via www.samsungapps.com.
Opera Mini is available for download for free, as it is on other mobile operating systems out there, including BlackBerry or Symbian.
“We want to make Opera Mini available everywhere to everyone,” said Erick Lee, vice president of sales and country manager for Korea, Opera Software.
“For owners of Samsung bada and Android devices, why are you even reading this far? Head over to Samsung Apps and download Opera Mini. I promise you’ll never look back.”
Opera’s mobile browser
is one of the most popular Internet navigation applications out there. Last month, it was used by over 168 million people all around the world.
Opera Mini can deliver both fast browsing speeds, as well as significant cost reductions when it comes to mobile data, since it can compress web pages by up to 90 percent before sending them to the handset.
“The magic is in Opera Mini’s heavy-duty server backend that crunches webpages down to a fraction of their original size. But, you don’t need to know that; you can just enjoy the super-fast web while staying under your data plan cap,” Opera explains.
