Oslo, Norway – August 23, 2006 – Opera Software today offers details
on its embedded browser for Sony’s mylo personal communication
device. Available in the United States in September, the mylo
communicator serves as an entertainment and communication device for
those who live in Wi-Fi enabled environments. With the Opera browser,
mylo communicator users can surf all their favorite Web sites,
including popular webmail services such as Yahoo! Mail and Gmail.

“We are excited to be a part of this unique and versatile new device
from Sony,” says Scott Hedrick, Executive Vice President, Opera
Software. “A communication tool such as mylo requires a browser that
can deliver full Internet content in a seamless and easy to use
manner. Users surfing while on the go want their information fast and
reliably delivered. With Opera’s extensive experience in providing
the full Web to mobile phones, it has proven to be the best choice
for mylo.”

Using Opera’s Extensible Rendering Architecture (ERA), Opera
instantly adjusts Web content to fit the mylo’s 2.4 inch color LCD
screen, providing a better, more intuitive Internet experience by
eliminating horizontal scrolling. The Opera browser for devices is
renowned for maintaining full browsing features on devices with fewer
resources than a typical desktop computer. With full Web standards
support, the Opera browser is easily ported to devices such as mylo –
delivering a superior browsing experience on any device.

“The mylo personal communicator puts the fun parts of a computer in
the palm of your hand,” said John Kodera, director of product
marketing for personal communication devices at Sony Electronics.
“It’s ideal for people who want to stay connected to their online
friends and family, but not be weighed down by a PC or buffeted by
charges for IM and texting on cell phones.”
