Opera Software will launch a new mobile web browser based on WebKit dubbed "Opera Ice". The app will launch in both iOS and Android flavors, and provide a new design intended to simplify the smartphone web browsing experience. Opera's current app, Opera Mini will remain available in the App Store.
Opera plans continue development of Opera Mini and use the software as a platform to introduce its users to new mobile apps. When it comes to Opera Ice, the browser will feature an optional home page much like the Speed Dial featured on Opera's desktop software. Users can set their favorite or most-used web pages into a grid of icons for quick access.
