Opera has just announced that its product Opera Mini, the world’s most popular mobile browser, is now available on more than 60 mobile phone models in Brazil through a partnership with TIM which is one of Brazil’s leading carriers. Dubbed as “Navegador TIM,” the co-branded application will be available either as a free download or will be preinstalled on phones used by TIM subscribers.
“We are very happy that TIM has chosen Opera Mini to be part of this large rollout of its mobile Internet strategy,” said Roy Satterthwaite, Senior VP, Americas, Opera Software. “Opera Mini’s unique features coupled with TIM’s competitive pricing will allow Brazilians to have the power of the Internet at their fingertips while on the move — at rates much lower than cybercafes.”
Opera Mini has become the closest experience to desktop surfing on the mobile phone, used by more than 60 million people the world over as indicated in the release available at opera’s website. The latest version of Opera Mini 5, offers innovative features such as Speed Dial, bookmarks, tabbed browsing and password manager. Apart from its user- friendly features, Opera Mini also gives users a fast browsing experience through its compression technology, which shrinks webpages by up to 90 percent before they are delivered on the mobile device.
