Opera Shows Tablet Browser at CES

Opera Software has announced that it will be demonstrating its new web browser for Android-based tablets and netbooks at CES.  Opera is calling it the “first public preview” but there’s no hint of when it will be publicly available, in beta form or otherwise.

“In 2011, tablets are a new must-have. Opera is creating waves with the first public preview of Opera for tablets,” said Christen Krogh, Chief Development Officer, Opera Software. “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.”

Opera has posted a YouTube video of the Opera browser running on what appears to be  a Samsung Galaxy Tab.  It looks pretty smooth.
