    Opera reveal Wii browser details

    In a recent press release, Opera have revealed some more details about the Wii version of their web browser.

    Features like Zoom, Bookmarks, and Wimote functionality will all come standard. The browser will be free for all Wii users to download until June 2007, after that, gamers will have to spend Wii points to download the software to their consoles.

    The best bits of the press release are below.

    Opera Software today announced details on its browser for Nintendo’s soon-to-be released game console, Wii. Opera’s full Web browser is available for download from the "Wii Shop Channel". Nintendo has stated that they will offer Opera free of charge as a temporary promotion for all Wii users until June 2007.

    From July 2007, users can purchase the Opera browser using Wii points. Wii points are credits users can buy that allow them to add new games or the Opera browser to their Wii consoles. The number of Wii points required to purchase Opera has not yet been announced.

    With support for Flash and AJAX-based content such as Google maps, Wii users will benefit from a feature-rich Internet experience that is uniquely customized for the Wii. Opera for Wii boasts the same complete standards support as the Opera 9 Desktop browser, and includes the added functionality of "Zoom" and "Bookmarks". The Wii remote control will also be an integral part of browsing, allowing users to intuitively control the Web with their Wii remotes.

    Nintendo has previously announced that Wii will be available in the U.S. on November 19, 2006, Japan on December 2, 2006, and in Europe on December 8, 2006. The cost for the console is $249.99 or 25,000 Yen.

    Hes asking if u have to pay for OPERA more than once, and the answer to that is no. It says that opera for wii will have the functions of opera 9 for desktop... Does that mean voice recognition too?

    web on the wii is free because it is wireless if you have a wireless router with your pc then you will only have to pay for the internet connection for the pc not for the wii because the wii is using a wireless conection, idiot.
