In the U.S. and Europe, Opera Browser can be installed into mobile phones.
Also in Japan, Opera is installed into many mobile phones.
The first mobile phone with Opera in Japan is AH-K3001V, made by Kyocera Corporation and provided by Willcom Incorporated. Then KDDI Corporation (au) and Toshiba Corporation sold the mobile phone named W21T, which has Opera as "PC Website Viewer," then CASIO, HITACHI, Sony Ericsson, and other companies has sold mobile phones which has Opera.
In 2006, KDDI started the au listen mobile service (LISMO). Mobile phones with LISMO can be used as portable music player, like iPod. KDDI's president says LISMO mobile phones can compete with iPod, how do you think?

I had used Firefox for dozens of days because I had to check for a problem of Stardust Planet Group (SDP), my websites.
But, today, I come back to Opera.
Recently, Pod for Students (PFS), a website of SDP, became popular, because of the livedoor shock.
I have written that the media coverage of Japan has many probrem of attitude toward the livedoor shock.
The former CEO of livedoor, Takafumi Horie, said in his weblog "livedoor President Diary" (now it is renamed to "Takafumi Horie Diary") that he was given more than 10 calls by TV Asahi. That happened early morning of Sunday. The calls are only harassing calls.
The livedoor shock is more dormant and more dormant, but I am still against for the media.If you can understand Japanese, try reading my blog, Pod for Students.
