Opera and BlackBerry: Faster, cheaper, easier

Oslo, Norway - March 7, 2012

The Opera Mini browser has now added another stamp to its passport and cleared BlackBerry customs by arriving in the BlackBerry App World.

BlackBerry users can go directly to App World and download the Opera Mini 6.5 browser.

Although just landing this week in the easily accessible BlackBerry App World, the world's most used mobile browser, Opera Mini, is big on the 'Berry. By downloading it manually from m.opera.com, BlackBerry users have been saving data and money on their BlackBerries for years. Now, it's even easier to download via App World.

More than 160 million people have discovered how the Opera Mini browser can spice up their mobile web experience. Not only does Opera Mini deliver the Web faster to your phone, it also displays the page just as it looks in your desktop browser.

Opera Mini's zoom gracefully dives into the content for easy reading and interaction. Opera Mini provides a smooth browsing experience and great social sharing capabilities.

All that, and data savings too! By using Opera technology, the Opera Mini browser only needs to transport ten percent of the data to your phone - a lifesaver while traveling, struggling with crowded networks, for your data cap or if you pay per megabyte downloaded.

BlackBerry users might specifically find enticing the use of hot keys that makes page-up and page-down viewing much faster.

"By adding another destination to Opera Mini's passport, we are extending our reach," said Lars Boilesen, Chief Executive Officer, Opera Software. "As the world's most popular browser, we want to take every opportunity for people to have access to our browsers, regardless of the device."

BlackBerry App World is available in more than 100 countries.
