QMobile to preinstall Opera Mini on its Android devices

Karachi, Pakistan - July 23, 2015

Pakistan's number-one-selling smartphone brand, QMobile, will pre-install Opera Mini on its upcoming range of Android smartphones and tablets. Opera Mini is one of the world’s most popular web browsers that provides the fastest internet experience.

Opera Mini is a fast, secure and easy-to-use web browser that works on almost any phone. It shrinks webpages up to 90% of their original size and helps users save mobile data. It can also be downloaded from m.opera.com or from app stores such as Google Play.

QMobile has the biggest portfolio of 3G phones in Pakistan. The company pioneered the first 4G LTE phone in Pakistan and maintains a rapidly-growing network. QMobile has always believed in offering affordable, cutting-edge technology to suit the needs of everyone.

Internet access has the power to change lives. It not only helps to bring people closer but also provides a great repository of information. And, the newest online generation is accessing the web with handsets. "Within a short time frame, QMobile has become the best-selling handset brand because we offer our users a range of affordable and reliable handsets," said Zeeshan Akhtar, CEO of QMobile. "Now, we are going a step beyond, making our smartphones more compelling by preinstalling useful apps such as Opera Mini, so that our users can benefit and enjoy the internet."

"In the past 20 years, our mission has been to make internet browsing possible on all kinds of devices, from low-end feature phones to the latest smartphones. The internet should not be the privilege of a limited few," said Lars Boilesen, CEO of Opera Software. "We feel that Opera Mini is a perfect fit for growing markets such as Pakistan and are glad to partner with market leaders like QMobile, helping to bring more people online."
