The Opera Platform: is this the Konfabulator for mobile?

The Opera Platform™ SDK is an SDK for developing rich client-side web applications on mobile devices such as Symbian Series60 phones (MS Smartphone support coming soon). With the Opera Platform™ Application Player, developers can create applications that interact with the phone’s native functionality, such as the phone’s address book, calendar or message store. In addition, developers can, using Ajax technology, interact directly with a multitude of web services, both home-grown and pre-existing.

In other Opera-related news, if you’re not already using Opera for Mobile, Opera Mini (previously only available for free to users in Nordic countries) is now freely available for download.
