Opera Mobile for Windows Mobile Discontinued

Today is a sad day for all Windows Mobile 6.5 and 6 users, as Opera Software has decided to drop WinMo OS support and has no plans to release any new browser versions in the future.

According to Dag Olav Norem post, there were no new devices launched for quite some time and OS market share is shrinking fast.

As a result, Windows Mobile can no longer supply Opera Software with the revenue potential that would justify further investment.

    Good.
    Hopefully, Opera has interest on WP7 and they get all the APIs needed for it in future.

      Considering that the main reason I got HD2 was because of the Opera Mobile, not so good for me :-)

    WP7 is essentially Win Mobile 6.5 with a updated skin and a new name to fool people into thinking it’s something like Windows 7.

    The only people with Windows Mobile 7 phones are devs and reviewers, nobody BUYS them…
