Opera Mini 4.2 out of beta, available for Android and Samsung Instinct too

After only two weeks since it released the beta version, Opera has now outed the final edition of Opera Mini 4.2.

Besides bringing several improvements, the release also marks the mobile browser’s official availability for Google’s Android platform (T-Mobile G1 users should be happy), as well as for Sprint’s Samsung Instinct touchscreen phone.  

Opera says that Opera Mini 4.2 is about 30% faster than the previous version, which means that all those who use it will be able to enjoy a significantly speedier mobile web experience.


The new stuff that Opera Mini 4.2 offers includes:

  • Support for more than 90 languages, the latest additions being Amharic, Assamese, Armenian, Bengali, Gujarati, Kannada, Kirghiz, Khmer, Kashmiri, Lao, Lingala, Malayalam, Marathi, Mongolian, Oriya, Pashto, Punjabi, Sinhala, Tajik, Tamil, Telugu, Turkmen, Urdu and Uzbek.
  • Opera Link support for notes – you can now sync your notes between Opera Mini and a PC
  • Enhanced RTSP (real time streaming protocol) handoff – thus more phones now have support for mobile video.
  • New skins for a personalized look

Opera Mini 4.2 can be downloaded for free via Opera’s official website.
