Opera Software has finally released its browser for PDA and smartphones devices running Microsoft’s Windows Mobile for Pocket PC (PPC) operating system. Based on Opera's newest core code, the app runs on both the new Windows Mobile 5 version of the Pocket PC OS and the previous 2003 incarnation. Opera Mobile 8.6 for Windows Mobile takes advantage of the larger screen and higher resolution of PPC devices to offer tabbed browsing and web surfing in horizontal mode. Additional useful features include auto-completed web addresses, a zoom function, a pop-up blocker and full download capabilities. "Until now, web browsing options on Pocket PCs have been decidedly limited,” said Paul O'Brien, the founder of MoDaCo.com - one of the world's largest Windows Mobile communities. "Opera Mobile for Pocket PC finally brings browsing speed, security and usability closer to a desktop experience. For owners of internet-connected Pocket PC devices, Opera is a must-have." Opera Mobile for Pocket PC is available from www.opera.com/mobile and is available as a free 30-day trial.
