Opera Software today announced that T-Mobile customers can now download, install and use the Opera Mini browser on their handsets. Opera has struck an agreement with T-Mobile, allowing a number of devices to use the alternative browser. It is compatible with the Nokia 2330, 2720, 3711, 5130, and E73 Mode; the Sony Ericsson Equinox; and the Samsung T239 and T659. Opera Mini compresses mobile web sites to help save wireless data charges. It is a free download from Opera Software.

It does say that they are adding handsets, so check back regularly.
