Opera Enters Advertising MarketBack in January of 2010, Opera Software has acquired a mobile advertising company “AdMarvel”.

Ever wondered what could possibly come out of this? Today, company has announced its plans to join mobile advertising market with its cloud-based, “Open Mobile Ad Exchange” platform.

By using JavaScript technology, company pushes advertiser ads directly into Opera Mini served web pages.

As Opera Software co-founder Jon von Tetzchner said, “there will be ads where you’re used to seeing ads,”.

Although there are almost 70 million Opera Mini users worldwide, it’s still unclear how exactly the company will attract potential advertisers and whether or not this product becomes a huge success.
