Opera 9 is coming to Palm

April 5, 2007

palm.gifGood news to all of you Palm users. The Opera Mobile browser is coming to Palm.

Palm signed an agreement with Opera in which it will include the Opera browser in its upcoming Palm products. The browser will be based on the Opera 9 rendering engine.

Palm hasn’t yet announced on which products it will install the Opera Mobile browser. Its most popular product (at least here in the US) is the Palm Treo handheld phone.

The Opera Mobile browser is already available for the Treo Smartphones, however users must download it manually. The free Opera Mini browser is also available for the Palm.

    The fundamental question: Will Opera develop Opera 9 for Palm OS or for Windows Mobile? Would you be so kind to ask Jon about it? 😉

    Now I want a Palm too…

    I just can’t afford all this cool stuff that comes with Opera on it. 😉

    Well I guess after this Treo users will have faster browsing with Opera Mobile Browser and secure too.

    I really hope they mean PalmOS, otherwise it’s no worth mentioning.

    Has to be Palm OS because windows mobile is not exclusive to palm devices. Cant wait.

    I can’t find anything in that article about Opera for the Palm OS, only a newer version for WM5.

    apparently the author ignorantly thinks that all Treos use WM5. it is already well know that opera mobile is available for WM5, but there has never been a native palm OS version. opera mini is OK, but is optimized for regular phones, and does not take full advantage of a treo’s power as a PDA/phone.

    Hope it was not a mistake. This would be great to have on my treo 700p.

    Just looking at Net Applications. The market
    share for Blazer is about 0.015% of internet traffic:


    Any extra use has to be good. Hopefully, this will help strengthen Operas position within the mobile browser market.

    It’s a really fantastic deal the parent company of Palm is ACCESS they have own mobile browser NetFront as you know. Good job Mobile team!

    The deal is with Palm Inc. and not Access. Palm Inc. has licensed the Palm OS source code from Access and may modify it…

    So Opera could develop a browser for Palm on Palm OS, on WM, or on Linux. That seems to be the 3 platforms Palm hardware plan to run on in future…

    Good analysis investor!

    There is a German announcement on http://www.heise.de that Palm Linux OS will come this year including Web-Browser Opera and Mail-Client ChatterMail.
