China has recently entered the 3G era (with China Mobile and China Unicom deploying TD-SCDMA and UMTS networks, respectively), so Huawei and Opera can now “deploy a fast and feature-complete Web experience on multiple mobile platforms.”
Neither Huawei, nor Opera said what phones would come with Opera Mobile 10 preinstalled, but the handsets might include Windows Mobile and Android devices, as well as feature phones.
“Customer expectations for mobile-phone capabilities are constantly growing. We needed a browser that’s always ahead of those expectations, anticipating our customers’ mobile Web needs and making it a reality. Opera is that browser. China represents unique growth opportunities in the mobile market, and we hope that with the addition of Opera Mobile to our handsets, more of China will soon be online,” declared Jiang Huabing, Head of Huawei handset R&D department.
Opera Mobile 10’s features include tabbed browsing, speed dial, Opera Link (for PC synchronization), panning and zooming, and Opera Turbo.
