Are new operating systems in the smart phone field hurting Nokia?

My friend, Ranesh Kumar considered picking up a new Nokia handset before he heard about the new Motorola Droid. Just last week, he bought two Motorola Droids from Verizon, one for himself and one for his fiancée.

Nokia_e70Ranesh was a Nokia fan for a long time and had owned few Nokia’s including an E70. But he made the transition to Verizon for a decent deal on a Voyager two years ago (because he likes qwerty keyboards and that was the only one he liked at the time). Ranesh couldn’t wait for a decent Nokia device to hit the market he liked, so he took the plunge. When he tested out the N97, he was terribly disappointed with the overall OS and decided to hold out for the Christmas season of this year to see what was around the corner and settled on the Motorola Droid running the Android 2.0 OS.

Opera Mini available for Blackberry and Palm Treo

opera miniOpera Mini, the free web browser for mobile phones, is now available for BlackBerry and Palm Treo smartphones. Opera Mini is a user friendly superior mobile browser.

Opera Mini is a fast and easy alternative to Opera’s mobile browser, allowing users to access the Web on mobile phones that would normally be incapable of running a Web browser. This includes the vast majority of today’s WAP-enabled phones.

The new version further improves the browsing experience by enabling download of images, MP3s, etc directly to your phone.

Opera Mini uses a remote server to pre-process Web pages before sending them to your phone. Web content is optimized for your device, ensuring fast browsing and a great user experience.

Opera Mini offers the same speed and usability as the renowned Opera mobile browser, and uses Opera Small Screen Rendering technology to provide access to the Web. It has all the features expected of a browser, and more, such as content download, skinning, bookmarks, browsing history. In addition, Opera Mini recognizes your phone and optimizes Web pages accordingly to provide faster browsing.

There are three ways to get the browser: 1) Point your phone’s current browser to http://mini.opera.com; 2) Send an SMS with the word OPERA to 96077 (SMS charges will apply); 3) Visit the Opera site and use the download wizard.

Update: It seems like once you install it into your Treo, there is a problem. When you attempt to open it, you receive the message “Please ensure that IBM’s WebSphere Micro Environment Java VM is installed.” The program would not open.
This is what you have to do: On the Treo 650, you’ll need Micro Environment Java VM. You can get it here: http://www.palm.com/us/support/jvm/
