Will use its own creation instead.
Nokia, the largest handset manufacturer in the world, is known to use the Opera Mini web browser in some of its products. However, things are about to change as with the launch of four new Series 40 devices, Nokia has decided to use its own web browser instead.
Just like Opera Mini or Amazon Silk, it will use a proxy browsing technology, which can compress web sites by up to 90%, saving bandwidth costs for the consumer. However, those are not the only devices to feature Nokia’s new toy. Earlier this month, a Finnish company has announced C2-05 and the X2-05 cell phones with the exact same technology.
One might ask, how did they come up with such idea? Back in March, 2010, Nokia has acquired Novarra, Illinois based company that specializes in web browsers and this is exactly where the technology comes from.
While Opera Mini was the first and only web browser to have a web page compression feature for quite some time, there appears to be an underlying trend, which now threatens to eliminate one of the main selling points of the mobile Opera web browsers.
