Sony and Opera just announced that they’ll work together to bring Opera Web browser on Sony connected devices like TV sets and Blu-ray players. In an obvious departure from PS3 crappy browser, the new Opera solution will support HTML5, OIPF and HbbTV. There is not talking yet about Flash so we can only hope they’ll be smart enough to include it.
Today’s announcement does not include however any information about when the new devices supporting Opera will be launches, although it has to be this year and presumably on the devices launched at CES 2011. Now if only Sony could replace their PS3 stock browser with the Opera version, we’ll declare ourselves satisfied.
Check after the break for a hands-on video.
