Even if not yet available commercially but only available for ODM and carrier partners and still in Beta, Opera Software made a fantastic job already to bring the real Internet to mobile devices, without any proxy servers in between but by rendering the web sites on the device. With Opera Mobile 9.5, Windows Mobile smartphones will finally get a web browser which is – at least – on the same level as Apple’s iPhone browser or Nokia’s S60 web browser; and no wonder that so many carriers and ODMs will include Opera Mobile 9.5 into its future device offer (as HTC will do with the Advantage 16 GB as well as T-Mobile will do with the Ameo 16 GB):As you can see on the video above, Flash video isn’t working yet because it requires Adobe’s Flash Lite 3 which needs to be licensed separately. But Opera Software confirmed, that – if Flash Lite 3 is includes – Opera Mobile 9.5 will be able to play Flash videos, as the one above or available at YouTube and other video portals.Opera Mobile 9.5 should be commercially available later this Spring but it will be released inbuilt with new Windows Mobile 6 smartphones before already. The consumer version is expected to cost something around US$ 24.95 and as always, Opera Software plans a free trial version too.” via theunwired.net
