Opera Mini browser coming to iPad
Next week at Mobile World Congress 2011, Opera Software is expected to present their Opera Mini application for Apple iPad.
Today Opera announced their latest statistics about the number of people who use the Opera browser. According to the numbers issued today in Opera’s State of the Mobile Web report, 90.4 million people use Opera Mini every month and approximately 15 million people use Opera Mobile each month. That’s a total of 105 million people that use Opera on their mobile phones.
“Experts all have some date when they claim the mobile Web will overtake the PC Web—we’re watching that transition now,” said Opera co-founder Jon von Tetzchner, in a statement. “But, rather than think of numbers, we think of people. 100 million is the beginning of a new era for the Web.“
“Our developers have been hard at work building the mobile browser of the future — for both consumers and mobile operators,” said Lars Boilesen, CEO, Opera Software. “We want our browser to impact lives in a meaningful way. It’s one reason we use mostly renewable resources to power Opera Mini’s servers. It’s why we make it light, so you don’t have to recharge your battery every few hours. It’s why Opera Mini and Opera Mobile can help operators reduce the bandwidth that clogs their networks. A browser may never change the world, but we’ll never stop trying to.“
