Opera to create Platform for Mobile

February 10, 2005

Opera Software is entering a new market place, the mobile handset User Interface (UI) business.

The idea is to let the browser become the front end for your mobile phone. It will allow you to access your applications such as the address book from the browser.

The advantage for doing so is the applications will be built to run from a browser rather then for a specific vendor.

Opera is calling this technology the Opera platform.

    If it is based on W3C Standards, than this will actually be good since other browsers would be able to use it as well.

    yakov, it doesn’t have to be based on W3C standards. Opera platform is just like IE/Mozilla platform (ActiveX and XUL respectively).

    But how is Opera platform compare to Mozilla platform? I can’t see any information about it. Both ActiveX and XUL/XPCOM is quite well documented.
