EVERCOSS users to surf faster with Opera Mini

Jakarta, Indonesia - February 25, 2014

Fast and easy internet access with an affordable price

Opera Software today announced a partnership with EVERCOSS, Indonesia's biggest handset manufacturer, to preinstall the Opera Mini mobile browser in its newly launched Android devices: the A7T and A12. The goal is to bring the best mobile browsing experience to all EVERCOSS users in Indonesia.

Opera Mini is packed with features that make browsing faster, better and cheaper. It delivers the web faster than any other mobile browser, by compressing webpages before they are sent onto consumers and reducing the size of each page to as little as 10% of its regular size. With Opera Mini, people can access a news site nine times more frequently than other browsers, using the same amount of data.

The EVERCOSS A7T sports a 5.0 megapixel camera, while the A12 comes with a 3.0 megapixel camera. Both devices are equipped with Android 4.2, Jelly Bean, supported by GSM 900/1800MHz ranges operating on GPRS, HSDPA, 3G and 3.5G networks.

"With Opera Mini preinstalled on our mobile devices, we can bring a better internet experience to our users, with an affordable price. EVERCOSS believes that everyone should be able to access the internet, and we want to make sure our customers are able to experience and enjoy mobile web browsing at its best. Working with Opera Software allows us to achieve this goal," says Janto Djojo, CMO, Evercoss.

Lars Boilesen, CEO, Opera Software, says, "We are extremely happy to announce our cooperation with EVERCOSS. Even more Indonesian users can enjoy the easiest and fastest way to discover a world of new content on their Android phones. EVERCOSS understands that the demand for mobile internet access is rapidly accelerating in Indonesia. With the combination of Opera Mini and EVERCOSS’ newly launched Android handsets, we hope to cater to the need for reliable and affordable internet and deliver better mobile web browsing.”
