Opera has been cooking up Opera Mobile recently, which will be a version of its browser designed for SmartPhones and other mobile devices. Both Google and Opera are apparently getting lucky with a partnership between the two, which will result in Google becoming the default method of searching from within Opera Mobile.

”Google will be the default search partner for the mobile browsers: Opera Mobile and Opera Mini," Opera Software ASA said in a statement. "Under the one-year contract, Opera will make Google Search a major part of the browsers home screen."
A somewhat ambiguous statement, but interesting nevertheless. Perhaps this will spurn further adoption of Opera.
