The most popular browser for handsets, Opera Mobile, has just been upgraded to version 8.65. The greatest thing about this evolution is that the software now supports Flash Player 7, which brings mobile phone Internet even closer to
what PCs are capable of bringing.
The list of improvements that this new version of Opera Mobile has brought for its users stretches a long way, bringing several other interesting solutions. Those who choose this software for browsing
the Web from their mobile phones will be able to save images and even copy paste. That's right, the exact features that were available only on PCs until now.
Opera Mobile brings from now on support for Macromedia Flash Player 7 for Pocket PC and FlashLite 2.1 as well. The result of this upgrade should be that of a considerably more enjoyable experience. Up to this point, the small screen brought a huge drawback to using mobile phones for Internet navigation, especially due to the small screens and unfriendly-looking browsers.
The latest version of the software works with Windows Mobile and also allows users to send links by e-mail, SMS or MMS, along with several other menu and user interface enhancements such as an integrated search field in the address bar.
"The Windows Mobile platform
has proved to be a powerful stage for Opera Mobile", commented Jon von Tetzchner, CEO, Opera Software. Moreover, "with Opera Mobile 8.65, users will improve their online productivity and amplify their level of fun through a superior experience that is unique to Opera and its powerful small-screen Web technologies", he further added.
