Opera Browser Powers WLAN-Enabled DoCoMo M1000 3G Phone in Japan

9/1/2005 - Opera Software announced that their popular Web browser will come standard on the new 3G handset from NTT DoCoMo Inc., the M1000. The M1000 is an advanced 3G phone for the business market, with full Internet and e-mail connectivity through both 3G and GSM networks, WLAN and Bluetooth.

The M1000 is the first 3G phone to take advantage of the dynamic functionality of Opera's Extensible Rendering Architecture (ERA) by enabling Web page content to fit the width of the screen in both vertical and landscape modes. The speed of 3G and WLAN networks combined with the larger screen size mean the user can browse the Internet with a look and feel that is remarkably close to a desktop experience on a broadband connection.

"The full Internet browser is really the only application that makes full use of 3G capacity by letting people browse the full Web at high speeds on their handsets," says Jon S. von Tetzchner, CEO, Opera Software. "With Opera's ERA rendering technology, the M1000 lets you surf in landscape mode, allowing for a really nice Web experience."

The phone is compatible with overseas W-CDMA,GSM and GPRS networks and public wireless LANs.
