Opera Software today announced an update to its Opera Mini browser to version 5.1. The relatively minor update makes the browser perform better in entry-level devices that may have low memory. According to Opera, it has removed icons, graphics, and the visual speed dial tool from the user interface. These subtractions allow Opera Mini to load more pages at once, improve scrolling speeds through pages, and boost performance throughout the browser. In particular, Opera notes that users of Nokia's S40-based devices should consider updating their version of Opera Mini to 5.1. Users of smartphones will not need to upgrade the Opera Mini browser in their devices. The software is a free download.

It seems like Blackberries are never very good at running Opera. The original 5.0 version runs fine on my Sony c510, as well as several older Sony models. One of the main reasons I use Sony phones, other than ...
