Opera has made the beta version of its mobile browser, Opera Mobile 10, available to handsets running Microsoft's Windows Mobile OS.
Opera said the move allows Windows Mobile users to experience desktop-like browsing on their handset. The browser has a similar user interface to the recently introduced Opera Mini 5 and Opera's latest desktop browser, Opera 10.
Windows Mobile users will also benefit from faster browsing thanks to Opera Turbo, Speed Dial, a password manager and tabs.
"We are unifying our products, so that users get the same experience, no matter the device or which particular Opera browser they are using," said Jon von Tetzchner, CEO, Opera Software.
"With Opera Mobile 10, we are raising the expectations of how a a mobile browser should perform. Today, users require a browser as powerful as the Web, one that can handle their daily tasks as well as their computers. That's Opera."
Opera recently made the browser available to those with Nokia handsets.
The browser can be downloaded from Opera's dedicated webpage.
