Opera Kicks Out Mini 4.1 Beta
I currently own a Cingular 3125 because I love the fact it is a flip phone PDA device. That being said, I hate the included Internet Explorer browser. With the recent announcement of a new beta version of Opera Mini, I may well be making a switch.
Opera said it has released a beta version of Opera Mini. This new beta version, Opera Mini 4.1, is designed to work with almost all mobile phones which let you browse the Internet. Opera says it has done a number of things to enhance its Mini browser, including quicker application speed, suggesting completion of your URLs for you, letting you save pages offline and letting you download/upload files such as ringtones and email attachments.
Opera claims over 40 million “cumulative users” have made use of Opera Mini to have a better mobile Web experience. The software, which is in beta, is free to download and use, subject to those nasty data fees your mobile operator might charge you. There are luckily other ways to install Opera Mini onto your phone as well.
If you find yourself in the read before buy mind set, Pocket PC Magazine has a very lengthy story up about its experiences trying out the Opera Mini 4.1 beta.
