Opera Unleashes Updated Mini Browser for Mobile Phones

Opera Software made the public beta of its new Opera Mini 4 mobile Web browser available for download today. Mini has been rewritten from the ground up to improve mobile browsing. It has a zooming feature that allows you to see an overview of the entire Web page and then zoom into the section you'd like to see, fitting the desired column to the width of the screen in a manner similar to the S60 browser or Safari on the iPhone. It also has a virtual mouse to let you select links on each page, as well as up-and-down and left-to-right scrolling functions built into the keypad. Mini works on most Java-enabled phones.

Blackberry 8830 (Verizon World Phone)

Has anyone tried it on the BB 8830? I don't mean to sound lazy and not just try it myself, but I've had some problems with my phone crashing from other 3rd party software so before I have to go a reset my phone I would appreciate if anyone could let me know if it works/doesn't work. Thanks so much for any help.
I use it on my 8830 and a guy I sold it to uses it as well much better browser no lock ups or anything.

Blackberry 7130e

This doesn't work on my BB7130e

When it get's to the point where you have to accept the EULA it only gives the option to Exit....not accept.
I have heard that if you hit "q" that is the accept button. Q and P serve as the softkeys for this application.

I was never a fan of the mini Operah, I've always preferred the fat Operah... Surprised

Wikipedia and IMDB search is gone

The start page on the old version had a handy custom search box that could be set to IMDB, Wikipedia, and some other options. Now it only has the Yahoo box.
Very sad.. I didn't notice. Report it to Opera.

Hey Guys, let me ask'ya something.

How exactly do you go about getting Opera Mini 4 onto a handset? Do you just navigate through Cingular's MediaNet and find it there? Is it that easy? I'd like to know.

But I am very, very glad with what I read,...

Really Swanky

I like the virtual mouse. The app is even smaller now and alot faster. Only thing is that I wished that google was the preferred search engine. If I recall in the first Opera Mini release google was the search engine of choice but things changed back in February.
Agreed. I prefer google over yahoo.

At least they should let us choose which search engine but it's probably a money deal between yahoo and opera.

Opera?

So, is their spokesperson a very large braided-blonde wearing a horned viking helmet?
