>> Hi, I'm Jessica Dolcourt with CNET Download.com and this is a First Look at Opera Mobile 9.5 beta. Opera's goal for this browser is to bring more of the speed and functionality of the desktop browser on to high-end phones like this. The first is that pages open in desktop mode by default -- that is they're zoomed-out. You'll be able to pick a starting point and zoom in by double-tapping the screen and can freely switch to mobile view, which auto-formats the page to fit within the width of the phone screen. In addition to the layout view, there's a lot more you can do with Opera Mobile 9.5. You'll be able to flip into landscape mode for one, save a page offline and highlight text by choosing from the context menu Text Selection On. You'll also be able to search for words in a page, download files and view saved pages. Opera Mobile 9.5 beta also supports Tab browsing, in a sense. You'll be able to open a number of new windows and switch between them from the navigation strip. While you're browsing, the control ribbon at the bottom hides out until you call it back. Tap the area once to open the navigation and tap it again to access additional features like settings, history and saved pages. One last thing I want to demonstrate is another addition from the desktop browser. When you enter text into the URL field, you'll notice that Opera has added the auto-complete. It will suggest websites you've already visited. A Google search bar has also been included below the address bar. At the time of this taping, Opera Mobile 9.5 beta is currently only available for professional-grade Windows Mobile Pocket PCs, not Windows Mobile Smartphones. This makes the app touch screen compatible, but other versions for Windows Mobile and Symbian phones are expected. Opera also plans to update this beta built with a growing number of features before the final release. Some of these features include support for Flash video, Google Gears and Opera Link, which is Opera's tool for managing bookmarks between for instance your mobile phone and your desktop. I'm Jessica Dolcourt and this has been Opera Mobile 9.5 beta. ^M00:02:05 [ Music ]
