Earlier this month Opera Software, the Norwegian software developer behind the Opera web browser, announced that the Opera Mobile Store has gone live. What does that mean? It means that more than 100 million users from more than 200 countries can access the Opera Mobile Store at on their mobile phones and get a myriad of free and paid applications.

Opera Software explained that the Opera Mobile Store is the result of a partnership with leading provider of open application marketplace technology, Appia. It was thanks to a strategic partnership with Appia that the Opera Mobile Store came to be, it is thanks to Appia’s storefront commerce technology that Java, Symbian, BlackBerry and Android phone users can easily access the Opera Mobile Store.


“The launch of the Opera Mobile Store supports Opera’s core belief in an open, cross-platform mobile Internet experience by providing Opera users with an integrated storefront of mobile applications,” said Mahi de Silva, EVP, Consumer Mobile, Opera Software. “Our partnership with Appia delivers to all Opera Mobile and Opera Mini users easy access to a wide variety of great content, on any device, all over the world.”

“The Opera Mobile Store presents a remarkable opportunity for mobile application developers to distribute localized content through a single, far-reaching marketplace,” said Jud Bowman, CEO of Appia. “Appia is thrilled to partner with Opera to deliver an incredible storefront of applications to Opera users and beyond.”

In related app store news, you may have hard that the Opera web browser made it to Apple’s Mac App Store; Opera is the first non-native browser made available in Apple’s Mac App Store. Here’s the funny thing: on the Mac App Store, Apple says you can’t download it unless you’re 17 or older. Opera Softwares’ VP of Desktop Products, Jan Standal jokingly said that he’s very worried about this fact. “Seventeen is very young, and I am not sure if, at that age, people are ready to use such an application. It’s very fast, you know, and it has a lot of features. I think the download requirement should be at least 18,” Standal joked.
