Opera ahoy, or is it the Loch Union Monster?

Norwegian browser maker Opera is planning to make a splash in Seattle, where its chief executive will make some sort of big announcement on June 20.

Opera’s having some fun with its archrival in Redmond. The location — on Lake Union — also continues the nautical theme of Opera’s press stunts.

A spokeswoman wouldn’t give more details, but I’m guessing the topics may include the launch of Opera 9, a new version of its flagship browser now in test. The company may also talk about the browser its providing to another Seattle-area company, Nintendo, for the DS player and upcoming Wii console. Opera’s been coy about the Nintendo browser launch, saying only that it will be available this summer in Japan.
