We had a brief chat with Opera Software product analyst Phillip Grønvold here at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona on Tuesday. We had a conversation about the company’s plans to submit an Opera Mini iPhone app up for App Store approval, of which we posted the video interview yesterday.
Another thing we touched upon was the recently announced plans to provide handset manufacturers with a toolkit to get the company’s Opera Mobile product preloaded on Android devices. Grønvold demoed the app running on Google’s Nexus One phone, and we recorded the video of the app in action, embedded above.
Note: again, this isn’t a consumer product, but an OEM offering. Opera Software says it works closely with many manufacturers around the world and hopes to get Android handsets with Opera Mobile pre-installed into the hands of consumers by the end of this year.
The company also points out you can download its lightweight mobile browser, Opera Mini, from Android Market today (we also know Opera is working on getting Opera Mini 5 in the store ‘soon’).
