Opera Introduces Opera News Lite
Opera is launching Opera News Lite, a lighter version of the popular Opera News application that offers more news at less data, and is designed for devices with limited data storage capabilities. With a download size of less than one megabyte, Opera News Lite is also a fast download for people on limited mobile networks.
“We have developed Opera News Lite as per requests from our users. The app is highly responsive on slow network conditions as it minimizes the use of data and resources. With Opera News Lite, we are making Opera News more accessible to everyone, especially for users with older handsets,”said Jørgen Arnesen, Head of Marketing and Distribution at Opera.
