The Register: "The stakes are deadly high. Opera has been chosen as the preferred browser by
the big mobile phone vendors as they seek to turn the humble voice phone into a ubiquitous
data-enabled smartphone: Symbian, which is essentially the cellphone industry's
we-don't-do-Microsoft joint venture, blesses Opera as its browser of choice. (The lion's share of mobile
handset operators - Nokia, Ericsson/Sony, Motorola and Matsushita - are Symbian shareholders, and
practically all of the others are licensees)."
