Idea is collaborating with Opera Software to launch a customized version of Opera Mini mobile browser for their customers.
Opera Mini is a browser aimed at feature phones and is capable of running on a wide variety of devices.
The collaboration would see Idea offering Opera Mini as a download from their mobile portal.
Idea spoke about this deal:
In emerging markets like India, the mobile phone will soon become the primary way of accessing the Internet. We are arming ourselves with the best-in-class solutions for catering to this data-hungry population.
Opera Software added:
Operators such as Idea Cellular are driving mass awareness about mobile Internet in the country. Opera Mini is the ideal enabler for the Web on all mobile phones, bringing the full Internet to all devices, regardless of device constraints and platform. As the mobile landscape in India grows and changes, we hope to work together with Idea Cellular and continue building value.
Of course, Idea users can download the generic version of Opera Mini already from the Opera website. It is also available from all major mobile app stores.
