You can now use your mobile phone running Opera Mobile with AJAX support to remotely control your PC or Mac.
SoonR and Opera Software today announced the first mobile AJAX application providing users instant remote access to their PCs from mobile phones running Opera’s award-winning mobile browser, Opera Mobile.
SoonR’s service combined with the Opera AJAX-leveraged browser enable carriers and consumers to enjoy a highly responsive, fast and user-friendly interaction on the mobile phone. SoonR frees users from installing applications on their phone as they access data stored on remote PCs or Macs. Carriers can generate higher usage of data services by providing a superior user experience. AJAX delivers better response time and easier navigation through a simpler, user-friendly interface. AJAX user requests hit the network less often, reducing latency of browser-based applications.
“Opera’s mobile AJAX-capable browser enables a second wave of mobile applications and brings SoonR’s core architecture to the forefront of simple mobile access,” said Martin Frid-Nielsen, CEO of SoonR. “AJAX-based applications are fast, easy to use and work on a wide range of mobile handsets.”
AJAX is a Web development technique that is increasingly used to develop new Internet services such as Google Maps and Amazon A9 Search. AJAX facilitates the creation and usage of rich Web applications with a remarkably short loading and response time. The Opera Mobile browser enables these types of rich Web applications to be developed and used on mobile phones.
“With the Opera-powered service from SoonR, people can quickly access their computer files and applications from anywhere using their mobile phones,” says Roger Carlhammar, EVP Mobile, Opera Software. “SoonR’s solution and the Opera Mobile browser is a terrific example of how AJAX can be used to create highly efficient and user-friendly mobile services.”
SoonR is the only service that delivers Windows and Mac-based data and applications to any data-enabled mobile device. SoonR is simple to use because it taps the built-in capabilities of the mobile phone with no additional software to install.
SoonR’s AJAX enabled interface will be available immediately for any mobile phone that can run the Opera Mobile browser version 8.6 and above.
