    The long-awaited Opera browser for the Nintendo Wii will show up later this week, as Opera announced that a trial version of the browser will be made available on December 22, with the final version slated for release in spring 2007. Opera for the Wii will be available as a free download through May. After that time, the browser will cost 500 points, or $5.

    Opera may end up being a selling point for the Wii system; the PS3 has a clunky and unintuive web browser, while the Xbox 360 lacks a browser despite enjoying strong online support in other areas. Not only will Opera bring a stronger web-browsing experience to the Wii than Nintendo's other two competitors, but the Wii remote should also prove to be a much simpler way to navigate the menus than the PS2 Sixaxis. Couple this with the Wii's built-in WiFi and you have a surprisingly robust set-top box for easy web browsing.

    This is very cool news. Talk about a match made in heaven - the wiimote and the opera browsing experience should go together very nicely. Thanks for the post.
