Samsung has added Opera Mini to their Java App Store. Opera Mini, which boasts 144 million users across the world, is one of the world’s most popular mobile browsers.
Samsung’s Java Apps Store is a marketplace designed to provide a variety of mobile applications especially developed and carefully selected for Samsung mobile phones. It can be accessed by all Samsung Java phone users from m.in.samsungapps.com. Opera Mini is available as a free download there.
Opera Mini is a fast and compact web browser that allows you to access the Internet on your phone. By downloading Opera Mini, you can use your cell phone to access websites and content, including your mail, community sites, news, blogs and more. When using Opera Mini, webpages are optimised and compressed before being sent to your phone. Therefore, the data transferred to your phone is significantly reduced, making mobile surfing cheaper. Opera Mini works on more than 3,000 mobile phone models, ranging from basic Java phones to the latest OS.
“Indians are gradually shifting their mobile usage habits from just being voice and text based to content based” said Sarfaraz Borah, senior manager, apps and services, Samsung Mobile India. “Serving Opera Mini on the India App Store brings us one step closer in providing our users with an optimised browser best suited for Java phones on Indian mobile networks.”
