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.

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
