Opera opens Beijing office

April 25, 2006

Opera today opened its new offices in (the communist) Beijing, China.

China has more than 100 million Internet users, and the number is increasing rapidly. Over 400 million people own a mobile phone, providing a massive market potential for Opera’s browsers.

With the new Beijing office, Opera is hoping to secure a strategic foothold in the emerging Chinese market and reinforcing its partnerships with local companies. Opera already has business relationships with Chinese and China-based companies.

In February Opera opened an office in India. The Norway based Opera also has offices in Japan, Sweden, USA, and Korea.

    Now all they need is a Canadian office. I don’t mean Toronto, Montreal, or Vancouver. Open it in Edmonton… ya Edmonton.

    Sairam, yes I found that surprising too after I spoke to one of my colleagues at work, who’s from India too. I remember he told me that it’s about a 3 hour drive from the main tech cities.

    I’m mad that Indian office was somewhere in North India, while Hyderabad and Banglore (Silicon Valley) are tech cities

    WRT India, Chandigarh is a fabulous city though. Hyderabad and Bangalore are pretty crowded, you would not wanna live there. Chandigarh on the other hand (planned by the great French architect Le Corbusier) is a pretty modern city. The weather is better too. I think the Chandigarh center was designed for marketing too, and most newspapers & magazines are published from different places so it wont matter. Hindu is published from Chennai, TOI from Bombay, HT from Delhi, Digit from Bombay, PC Quest from Delhi… But yea I am not sure which respected Technology institutes they were referring to when they said Chandigarh is few hours from most of them? The only tech city within 3 hour drive is Delhi (& suburbs) – which frankly speaking, is not as tech savy as Bangalore, Chennai, Hyderabad or Pune.
