Opera Software has released a version of its web browser for smartphones running Windows Mobile 2003.

A version for Windows Mobile Pocket PCs is in development.

“Originally, we had not planned to make Opera available on the Windows Mobile platform, but users kept asking for it because they were disappointed with the far from satisfactory performance of the browser that came shipped on their devices,” says Jon S. von Tetzchner, CEO, Opera Software.

Opera 8 for Windows Mobile is based on Opera’s latest core technology, and supports all major Web standards, including CSS2, DOM 2 and JavaScript.

It also includes the latest version of Opera’s Small-Screen Rendering which dynamically reformats Web pages to fit the width of any screen, eliminating the need for horizontal scrolling.

The current version will not work on Orange and Verizon devices, or on ones running Smartphone 2002.

Opera 8 for Windows Mobile 2003 Smartphone is available for download from the company’s web site. The price is $29.
