Symbian and Opera Software today announced an agreement to include Opera as the default browser in Symbian's reference designs for Communicator devices. Symbian is an operating system for handheld devices. It was setup by Ericsson, Motorola, Nokia, Panasonic and Psion.

The first device to use Symbian will be the Nokia 9210 Communicator. The version of Opera used is near identicle to the full blown Opera 5 for windows.
I think it can only be a matter of time before Opera for CE comes out. With agreements on the books with IBM, AMD, and Psion, Opera is fastly becoming the hand held browser leader and may overtake Microsoft yet this year.
