GetJar De-Lists Opera Mini Over Competitive Issues
Mar 9, 2011, 8:26 AM by Eric M. Zeman
Mobile application store GetJar has removed Opera Mini from its app store in response to yesterday's launch of the Opera Mobile Store. Opera Mini has been one of the most popular applications downloaded from GetJar's app store. In a blog post, Patrick Mork, Head of Marketing at GetJar, said, "The simple problem is that Opera mini decided to include a competing app store in its browser. Although we don’t have any issue with this in principle, in practice it means that consumers might start using this app store instead of visiting GetJar to get their favourite apps. This robs GetJar of traffic and therefore of the advertising necessary to keep our service free for the more than 25 million consumers that use GetJar." The Opera Mobile Store launched on March 8, and offers free and paid applications to the Android, BlackBerry, Java and Symbian platforms.
