Opera introduces new, cross-platform UI framework

opera-logo  Opera Software today released Opera Mobile 10 to operators and OEMs. This direct-to-distributor version is available on Android, BREW, Windows Mobile and Symbian/S60 smartphones and includes Opera’s new, cross-platform UI framework. As a part of Opera’s shift to unify the look and feel of its mobile browsers, the cross-platform UI framework allows operators and OEMs to implement the same user experience quickly and cost-effectively across their entire range of handsets.

Opera’s cross-platform UI framework is built on top of the browser engine. This allows it to work seamlessly on all platforms running Opera Mobile or Opera Mini.Opera’s cross-platform UI framework empowers operators and OEMs to deploy one browser UI to a wide range of devices, with minimal integration. The result is a unified, consistent Internet experience for the end users and time and cost savings for the operators or OEMs.

“Because no operator offers just one type of mobile phone, Opera has developed a new UI solution that can be deployed on multiple phones and platforms. Due to its pure versatility, the cross-platform UI framework can be customized by Opera to meet brand requirements,” said Jon von Tetzchner, CEO, Opera Software. “Our mobile UI has already been deployed
on millions of handsets, and the rave reviews we’ve received tell us that Opera has succeeded in creating a unique and visually stunning Web experience that’s easy and compelling for users across the board.”
