Opera Software today announced that its revolutionary Opera smartphone browser will soon become available for Microsoft Windows Mobile software.

Opera's range of smartphone browsers includes Small-Screen Rendering (SSR) technology, an Opera innovation that enables users to browse regular Web pages for the first time on small mobile screens by reformatting the page and thus eliminating the need for horizontal scrolling.

Opera's SSR is amazing for mobile phones. This is the most exciting announcement I've heard in a while for MS smartphone software. Remember that software built for the MS smartphone platform is only one step away from and usually easily portable to the MS PDA platform.

The browser on the Treo 600 will allow you view a webpage in two formats. The first displays a page that is reformated so the images fit on the screen and everything wrapped so that there is no horizontal scrolling. The other option shows the page in it's original format with horizontal scroll.

I find that I can view most site using the wrapped format and still get an idea of how the page is laid out. Once in while, especially site with a photo gallery, I need to switch it to the wide screen format.

I keep my Treo 600 in the wrap mode - I never have to scroll horizontally and it's great. This is a fabulous feature and those who end up using the new Opera will LOVE it.
