OSLO (Reuters) - Opera Software's(OPERA.OL) internet browser will be pre-installed on Nokia's (NOK1V.HE) new low-cost mobile phone platform, known as the X, Norway's Opera said on Monday.

"At launch time, the Nokia models launching with Opera pre-installed ... include the devices Nokia X, Nokia X+ and Nokia XL," Opera wrote in a statement.
