Opera is set to unveil a new iteration of its web browser at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show, in a bid to improve the mobile internet experience on Android tablets.
Previewed briefly this week in a brief online clip, the browser’s new U.I. Along with a strangely robotic voiceover, the video makes much of the smoother, slicker scrolling and zooming that users can apparently expect. We also got a look at a rather smart Google Chrome-style home screen that displays Android tablet owners’ most visited sites.

However, before all you Galaxy Tab fans get too excited, the company has stressed that it’s only debuting the browser at the tech expo. It won’t actually launch until later this year.
Christen Krogh, Chief Development Officer at Opera, said: “In 2011, tablets are a new must-have. Opera is creating waves with the first public preview of Opera for tablets.
“Opera for tablets brings the same trusted Internet experience to tablets and netbook PCs as users have come to love on their mobile phones and desktops.”
CES 2011 takes place between January 6th and 9th and will this year play host to booths from some 2,700 tech companies.
Details of what we can expect are pretty thin on the ground right now. But we do know that a raft of tablets are to be showcased at the event, including Toshiba’s 10.1-inch effort.
