Opera Mobile 9.7 launches in beta

Mobile browser renders pages '25% faster'

Opera software has made the beta version of its latest mobile browser, Opera Mobile 9.7, publicly available.

The latest version of the browser features Opera Turbo technology and Opera Presto 2.2 - the same rendering engine used in Opera's desktop browser - which the software company says speeds up data transfer and renders pages up to 25 percent faster than previous versions of the browser.

The browser also features an add-on Opera Widgets manager that offers users one-touch access to their favourite websites and services such as Twitter and Google Translate.

"There are other mobile browsers on the market that claim to be faster and more website-compatible on Windows-based phones, but I challenge users to take Opera Mobile for a test drive and discover a new standard for speed and compatibility.

"Opera Mobile 9.7 leaves other 'sluggish' and 'painfully slow browsers in the dust," said Jon von Tetzchner, CEO, Opera Software.

Opera Mobile 9.7 is available for Windows Mobile phones and can be downloaded from Opera's website.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
