Samsung, Opera partner for mobile browsing

Advanced Samsung cell phones will include Opera browser reformatted for small screen and designed for vertical scrolling.

Samsung Electronics has signed an agreement to bundle Opera Mobile with its advanced cell phones, Opera Software announced Thursday. The Opera Mobile browser reformats Web pages as smaller replicas that require only vertical scrolling--as opposed to wider views that need scrolling both vertically and horizontally--in order to view an entire page.

The news follows Opera's security update for Opera 9.1 and Nintendo's announcement that Opera will be the choice browser for Nintendo's Wii game console. Opera for Wii is set to release Friday.
