More than 100 million people use an Opera browser each month on their mobile phones

Opera Software has calculated that 105 million people use one of its browsers on their mobile phones every month. The company’s latest State of the Mobile Web report reveals that 90.4 million people now use Opera Mini every month and approximately 15 million people use Opera Mobile each month.

Jon von Tetzchner, co-founder of Opera Software, said “Experts all have some date when they claim the mobile Web will overtake the PC web — we’re watching that transition now. But, rather than think of numbers, we think of people. 100 million is the beginning of a new era for the Web. In the next few years, hundreds of millions of people will take their first baby steps online. They will make their voices heard across their country and around the world. They will not only discover new ideas, but contribute their own. We defend those voices and celebrate those ideas. It is why we believe access to the Web is a universal right, and no device is more universal than a mobile phone.”

The company will debut new versions of Opera Mini on Android, iPhone, iPad, J2ME, BlackBerry and Symbian and at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona next week.
