Opera to Announce Deals with US Mobile Operators

Opera Software is polishing its mobile web browser strategy. While they are making deals with mobile phone manufacturers such as Nokia, HTC, Samsung and Sony Erickson to place their mobile web browser into various handsets, recently they started to skip them and partnership directly with the operators.

As a result, Opera will be announcing deals with US mobile operators at the CTIA Wireless in early April. While they refuse to tell with whom those deals will be made, Opera Software usually works with big operators only.

If everything goes as planned, Opera will strengthen their positions in the US market as well as increase their revenues.

Sundar Pichai said:

This is because Internet Explorer is tied to Microsoft’s dominant computer operating system, giving it an unfair advantage over other browsers. Compare this to the mobile market, where Microsoft cannot tie Internet Explorer to a dominant operating system, and its browser therefore has a much lower usage
