Mobile development luxury

May 25, 2011

Oslo, Norway - May 25, 2011

Today, life just became easier for web designers and developers. Opera Software has released the latest version of its Opera Mobile Emulator, an essential tool for anyone creating websites and web content.

Mobile testing is the new black in modern day web development. However, testing on phones and tablets is rarely straightforward: you have to buy several devices or install complex software development kits. With Opera's new mobile emulator, this hassle is now history. We have made it easier than ever to install and run the Opera Mobile Emulator on your PC or Mac and tweak all kinds of environment settings, going from screen sizes and densities to input modes and much more.

Today's release is a developer companion to our earlier Opera Mobile 11 release for Symbian and Android phones and tablets. As the Opera Mobile browser is already running on all these platforms, we went the extra mile and ported the product to also run on Windows, Mac and Linux.

"The Opera Mobile Emulator is a great tool for anyone who is involved with mobile development," said Andreas Bovens, Group Leader for Developer Relations & Tools at Opera Software. "We wanted to make mobile testing super easy (yes, even our PR guys manage to use it!). In the emulator, you"ll find a ton of customization options for a wide range of mobile platforms. And, of course, you can do close-up code inspection and live editing via Opera Dragonfly's remote debugging functionality."
