Opera Mini browser on bada and Android now available in Samsung Apps

Seoul, Korea and Oslo, Norway - May 4, 2012

The Opera Mini mobile web browser is now available in Samsung Apps, Samsung's dedicated application store. Owners of Samsung smart devices running bada and Android can download Opera Mini, the web-accelerating, cost-slashing web browser, from Samsung Apps on their devices, Kies (PC Software) or absolutely free.

Last month, more than 168 million people used Opera Mini to speed up their web browsing and drastically reduce the cost of their mobile data spending. The magic is in Opera Mini's heavy-duty server backend that crunches webpages down to a fraction of their original size. But, you don't need to know that; you can just enjoy the super-fast web while staying under your data plan cap.

"We want to make Opera Mini available everywhere to everyone," said Erick Lee, Vice President of Sales and Country Manager for Korea, Opera Software. "For owners of Samsung bada and Android devices, why are you even reading this far? Head over to Samsung Apps and download Opera Mini. I promise you"ll never look back."
