Opera Software has announced that their Opera Mini mobile web browser will come pre-installed on all Android devices to be launched by Micromax. These devices will be available in India, Russia, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and Nepal.
Opera Software and Micromax had joined the hands last year and till date, Opera Mini has been preinstalled on over 50 models of Android smartphones and tablets shipped by Micromax. This partnership has enabled millions of Micromax users to enjoy the benefits of browsing the internet with Opera Mini.
Opera Mini offers features such as Smart Page notifications, Speed Dial website shortcuts, download manager, password manager, visual tabs, saved webpages for offline viewing and a share feature – all creating a smooth and fun browsing experience. Opera Mini compresses webpages to as little as 10% of their original size before sending them to the handset; as a result, content is delivered faster, and users save on data costs. Consumers can monitor their data savings via Data Usage menu in the browser. By preinstalling, Micromax can make sure that its users get a smooth web experience from the devices.
Speaking about the partnership with Micromax, Lars Boilesen, CEO, Opera Software, said, “This partnership has helped us reach out to millions of people whose primary source of web consumption is through mobile devices. With Micromax becoming the #1 handset manufacturer in India, there is a huge opportunity for us to equip a wide audience with the power of the web.”
