Great news for mobile users in Taiwan: Norwegian developer Opera Software has recently announced that it struck a deal with Chunghwa Telecom, the leading telecom service provider in Taiwan. As part of the aforementioned deal, a special version of Opera’s Opera Mini web browser has been released to mobile users in Taiwan. What’s so great about that?

As Opera Software put it, you can make any phone a smartphone as long as you have a smart browser. The Opera Mini version released for Taiwanese users provides easy access to popular websites such as Facebook, Plurk and local news portals. It provides a faster, better and more affordable mobile Internet experience.


“Everyone can browse easily with the Opera Mini browser because it is smart and user friendly,” said Vincent Li, Country Manager, Opera Software, Taiwan. “The secret is that the Opera browser offers text-wrapping technology, making it easy to read on mobile phones. This ensures that users can read most content without having to scroll sideways, facilitating an enjoyable browsing experience on a small-screen mobile device. Now my father is able to use Opera Mini on his mobile phone to check on his grandson’s status on Facebook.”

“One of the obstacles to widespread adoption of the mobile Internet in Taiwan was the lack of a decent Internet browsing experience on non-smartphones,” said Shi Mu-piao, Vice President, Chunghwa Telecom.” People have mobile phones that are Internet capable but they find it difficult to browse the Web like they do on PC. With the CHT-Opera Mini mobile browser, more people are able to browse the Web and Hami services with ease.”

Opera Mini is the most popular browser for mobile phones. The numbers speak for themselves: since January 2011, there are more than 90.4 million monthly Opera Mini users.

With Opera Mini mobile users can easily and rapidly surf the web. Opera Mini can offer exceptional browsing speeds thanks to Opera’s original rendering engine and server-side data compression technology. Furthermore, Opera Mini comes with tabs, URL auto-complete and it highlights keywords – all these features help the user find the info he is looking for at a rapid pace.

If you are a Chunghwa Telecom subscriber and you would like to get the special Opera Mini version presented above, launch your default mobile browser and go to m.opera.com/cht/. For additional info on how to download the browser you can also call 88866.
