Opera unveils touch browser for tablet and netbook PCs

January 3, 2011

Las Vegas, Nevada - January 3, 2011

If you were nice in 2010 then there is a good chance Santa left you one of the hottest gifts of the year - a tablet. Now that it is January you are probably looking for ways to get the most of out of your tablet. Luckily, Santa has some special Norwegian helpers who worked all through the holidays to kick off the New Year with a browser designed especially for tablets.

At the annual Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2011, Opera Software will unveil the first public preview of Opera for tablets. Whether it's checking email, managing social networks or surfing the net, Opera's specialized browser for tablets provides you with the smoothest tablet and netbook experience on the market.

"In 2011, tablets are a new must-have. Opera is creating waves with the first public preview of Opera for tablets," said Christen Krogh, Chief Development Officer, Opera Software. "Opera for tablets brings the same trusted Internet experience to tablets and netbook PCs as users have come to love on their mobile phones and desktops."
