Jakarta, Indonesia - February 26, 2014

Opera Software want the world to have fast, affordable and accessible internet access. As part of achieving this aim, today, Opera Software and MITO have announced that MITO’s new Android handset, the MITO Fantasy Pocket, will have the Opera Mini browser pre-installed on the device, allowing users to surf the web in a fast and efficient way.

MITO is among the top-three largest mobile-phone producers in Indonesia, with a rapidly growing customer base and widespread distribution across the country.

Jacksen Lie, Marketing Director, MITO Mobile, says, "This partnership allows MITO to add value to our customers’ user experience, so they can enjoy fast and cost-effective browsing, while exploring a wide range of websites such as social media or online news, directly from Opera Mini.”

The new MITO Fantasy Pocket runs on the Android 4.2 Jelly Bean operating system, supported by dual GSM 900/1800MHz and A7 Quad Core 1.2 GHz, and operates on EDGE/3G/HSDPA networks. The device sports a capacitive touchscreen that allows for quick and natural browsing, and it is also equipped with dual camera 2.0 MP + 0.3 MP with flash.

The Opera Mini browser has over 249 million users globally and is compatible with more than 3,000 different handsets. Opera Mini easily wins over people, thanks to its ability to compress data to as little as 10% of its original size before sending in the handset, resulting into faster and more cost-efficient mobile browsing.

Opera Mini is also equipped with sleek features such as Smart Page notifications, Speed Dial website shortcuts for a smooth and fun internet-surfing experience and easy access to Opera Mobile Store, offering an alternative source for downloading apps on your handset.

Lars Boilesen, CEO, Opera Software, says, "We are very proud and excited to collaborate with one of the market-leading mobile-phone producers in Indonesia and to reach more Indonesians users. MITO has a wide distribution and affordable price, allowing more users in the country to get online.
