Opera Mini Updated for iOS, BBOS, Symbian, and Java

Opera Software today made its Opera Mini 6.5 browser available to a range of new platforms, including Apple's iOS, RIM's BlackBerry OS, Nokia's Symbian S60 OS, as well as Java-based devices. The new version of Opera Mini offers a handful of new features, the most significant of which is a data usage counter that shows users how much data they are using and how much data they are saving while using Opera Mini. The idea behind the feature is to give those who are roaming on data networks in other countries a better idea of how much data they are consuming. Opera claims that Opera Mini compresses mobile web page data by 90%, which translates to savings when roaming abroad. The refreshed browsers also now have a tool that lets users import the bookmarks from the desktop version of Opera to their handsets. Opera provided a similar update to the Android version of Opera Mini 6.5 last month. Opera has also updated Opera Mobile 11.5 for Symbian S60 handsets. The new browsers are available from each platform's respective app store.
