Opera makes AJAX mobile

Opera Software today released a beta version of Opera Platform SDK, a software development kit for developing and running Web applications on mobile phones. With Opera Platform SDK, developers can rapidly develop Web applications that let users interact with information in new ways. For example, a Web application can be an email client, a game, or a stock ticker.

Opera Platform allows developers to create platform independent applications based on well known Web technologies such as HTML, CSS and JavaScript. The combination of these technologies is popularly referred to as AJAX. AJAX is a Web development technique that is increasingly used to develop new Internet services such as Google Maps and Amazon A9 Search. Opera Platform enables these types of rich Web applications to be developed and used on mobile phones. In addition, Developers can easily adapt existing content and Web applications to run on mobile phones using Opera Platform.

“The full Web browser has proved itself as a central application on mobile phones and is today the main source for data traffic on mobile networks,” says says Timo Bruns, Vice President for Business Development, Opera Software. “With Opera Platform we are now building the foundation for the next generation of mobile services by enabling the easy, fast and cost- effective creation of compelling Web based mobile applications.”
