Barcelona, Spain - February 24, 2014

Nokia X customers get the best mobile surfing experience, from day one

The Opera browsers are expanding their turf, as Opera and Nokia today announced that the Opera browser will come pre-installed on the Nokia X software platform recently announced.

The Opera browser launching with the Nokia X software platform is a full-fledged browser, with full web compatibility with standards such as HTML5 compatibility, the Blink rendering engine, Opera’s renowned compression feature and user friendliness.

With pre-installation in Nokia’s X-family of devices, the Opera browser offers customers a superior web browsing experience right out of the box. All the customer needs to do is to select Opera as their favorite browser to discover the web.

“Being a key player on a debuting platform is always exciting, and when Nokia is the force behind the project, doubly so,” says Lars Boilesen, CEO Opera Software. “We have a long history of working with Nokia and we are glad they chose Opera to be included in the Nokia X from launch day. Together, we are committed to giving customers a great surfing experience right from the start.”

At launch time, the Nokia models launching with Opera pre-installed on the Nokia X software platform include the devices Nokia X, Nokia X+ and Nokia XL.

“Nokia X will bring millions of customers around the world their first true smartphone experience,” says Bryan Biniak, Vice President, Developer Experience at Nokia. “With the Opera browser pre-installed, customers will be equipped with a high-quality, intuitive mobile web browser from the moment they turn on their device.”
