Opera Mobile 10 Beta Now Available For Windows Mobile Phones, Too


About two weeks after debuting the latest beta build of Opera Mobile for Nokia and other Symbian/S60 smartphones, Norwegian software maker Opera is bringing the latest beta version of its custom mobile browser application to Windows Mobile-powered devices.

Microsoft's operating system for mobiles is taking quite a hit lately, having lost one third of its smartphone market share since 2008 according to research firm Gartner.


About two weeks after debuting the latest beta build of Opera Mobile for Nokia and other Symbian/S60 smartphones, Norwegian software maker Opera is bringing the latest beta version of its custom mobile browser application to Windows Mobile-powered devices.


Microsoft’s operating system for mobiles is taking quite a hit lately, having lost one third of its smartphone market share since 2008 according to research firm Gartner.


But Microsoft still holds about 8% market share in the segment and it is currently prepping the 2010 release of Windows Mobile 7, so all is not unequivocally lost for Redmond in this space – whether you want to believe it or not.


Anyway, Opera Mobile 10 Beta is now available for Windows Mobile phones, and that means users can benefit from a more enjoyable browsing experience from their handsets than is usually the case with built-in and other third-party web browsing tools.


The Opera Mobile 10 beta for Windows Mobile looks and feels similar to the Opera 10 desktop browser and Opera Mini 5 beta and has all the features that were already available for Nokia and other Symbian/S60 phones: Speed Dial, tabbed browsing, a password manager and its super, server-side compressor, Opera Turbo.


It’s supposed to be way faster, too. Anyone still own a Windows Mobile smartphone want to take Opera Mobile 10 Beta for a spin and let us know how much of an improvement it is?
