Mobile browser provider Opera Software said today it has launched the Opera Mobile Store.
The Opera Mobile Store has been built via a partnership with Appia, a provider of open application technology. The Opera Mobile Store offers both free and paid applications for virtually any mobile platform and device. The Opera Mobile Store is available to Opera users and users of other mobile browsers, on all popular mobile phone platforms in more than 200 countries.
The Opera Mobile Store uses Appia’s storefront commerce technology and leverages a wide catalog of applications for phones with Java, Symbian, BlackBerry and Android operating systems.
Opera Software has also launched the Opera Publisher Portal, providing developers with a way to get their applications onto the Opera Mobile Store.
“The Opera Mobile Store presents a remarkable opportunity for mobile application developers to distribute localized content through a single, far-reaching marketplace,” said Jud Bowman, CEO of Appia.
