Opera Mobile Store replaces Nokia Store

Opera has done a pretty commendable job of keeping its latest, greatest wares up to date on most of the major mobile platforms, and here’s another checkbox they can tick: Opera Mobile has now gone final for Nokia feature phones .

Of course, this isn’t to be confused with the heavier Opera Mini product that went into beta for iPhone a few months ago — this is the full package that’s capable of operating without a proxy but extra light and compatible on the feature phones.

What’s new? Well, the company says that this addition will see people who access Nokia Store from Series 40, Series 60, Symbian, Asha and Nokia X devices will be automatically redirected to Opera Mobile Store, where they will be offered the opportunity to become customers of Opera Mobile Store and have access to tens of thousands of apps for their Nokia phones.

This announcement of course follows a separate agreement, announced in August 2014, which will see Opera become the default browser on Nokia-branded phones, including Series 30+, Series 40, Asha and Nokia X handsets.
