Opera offers mobile browsing on Series 60

Users of smart phones equipped with Nokia Corp.'s Series 60 software running on top of the Symbian operating system can download a mobile phone browser featuring SSR (small-screen rendering) technology from Norway's Opera Software ASA.

Users of Nokia's 3650, for instance, can test the Opera browser for Series 60-based handsets free of charge for a trial period of 14 days, the company said Tuesday in a statement at a Symbian conference in London. After that, they can purchase the software for €19.95 (US$21.90).

The availability of the Opera mobile browser for Series 60-based phones follows the February launch of the company's SSR technology in the P800 handset manufactured by Sony Ericsson Mobile Communications AB, according to the statement.

Unlike mobile Web systems in the past requiring developers to code pages in special languages, Opera's SSR technology takes a Web page written in HTML (Hypertext Markup Language) and reformats it to fit on a smaller screen, thus eliminating the need for horizontal scrolling, the company said.

Opera, a privately-held company in Oslo, Norway, develops software for smart phones, PDAs (personal digital assistants), interactive TV and other devices.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
