Opera Announces Mobile 10 Beta for Symbian
Today Opera Software released a beta version of Opera Mobile 10 for the Symbian platform. Opera notes that the biggest new features offered by Opera Mobile 10 are a vastly redesigned user interface for the browser, though it still maintains core features such as speed dial and tabbed browsing. Mobile 10 supports both touch phones and phones with standard keypads. Turbo, Opera's server-side compression service, is built into Opera Mobile 10, and Opera says that users should experience a significant increase in speed and performance. The beta supports S60 3rd Edition and S60 5th Edition and is a free download from Opera.
