China-based mobile manufacturer Huawei has agreed to pre-install Opera Mobile 10 on a range of its mobile handsets. It'll be using the special operator/OEM version of Opera Mobile 10 that was released in December 2009.
Jiang Huabing, head of Huawei's handset R&D department, said "Customer expectations for mobile-phone capabilities are constantly growing. We needed a browser that's always ahead of those expectations, anticipating our customers' mobile Web needs and making it a reality. Opera is that browser".
Lars Boilesen, CEO of Opera Software, added "By working with a market leader such as Huawei, we are able to develop more deeply into the Chinese market and bring the Web to more people. Opera Mobile 10 is a significant achievement for Opera, as it takes mobile browsing to the next level. Huawei has recognized the value Opera adds for its customers, and, with our help they will continue to exceed expectations."
