Opera's Small-Screen Rendering Delivers Full Web to Sendo X's Browser

11/10/2003 - Sendo, the British mobile phone manufacturer, and Opera Software announced that Opera technology underpins the Sendo X's Internet browser. With Opera's technology, the Sendo X delivers meaningful mobile Internet content, any time, any place, in a small and light device.

Opera's innovative "Small-Screen Rendering" (SSR) reformats the Web to Sendo X's screen size. No horizontal scrolling is needed for a great Internet experience.

"With the bright screen on the Sendo X, users get a phenomenal Web experience, while mobile operators gain a valuable new income stream from GPRS data traffic," says Susan Macke, VP Smartphones, Sendo. "With Opera's technology, the Sendo X goes beyond mobile WAP, giving users immediate access to the world of mainstream Internet content. This is the real Web in your hand, seamless and easy to navigate."

"We at Opera are excited to see our highly regarded Internet browsing technology integrated into the new Sendo X," commented Rolf Assev, executive vice president strategic alliances, Opera Software. "Opera's unique Small-Screen Rendering, coupled with a strong commitment to open Internet standards and long PC Internet experience, mean that Sendo X users benefit from highly usable, compatible Web surfing, right out the box."
