Opera Mini is already available for most major mobile platforms, but not for iPhone. Well, Opera has just announced that it would showcase Opera Mini for iPhone next week at MWC 2010 – although it will not do it publicly, but in an exclusive press and partner preview.
Of course, this doesn’t mean that Opera Mini for iPhone will be available anytime soon – as Apple may not approve it, or it may even block it, since the iPhone already has the Safari web browser that’s quite capable.
Assuming that Opera Mini makes its way to the iPhone, it will bring features like speed dial, tabbed browsing, and password manager.
“We are thrilled to offer journalists and partners an exclusive preview of Opera Mini for iPhone during the year’s biggest mobile event. This is a unique opportunity to introduce the fast, feature-rich Opera Mini experience for the iPhone. Opera’s mission is to bring the Web to the world, and by making Opera Mini available on yet another platform, we are one step closer,” declared Jon von Tetzchner, Co-founder, Opera Software.
Opera will also showcase its latest versions of Opera Mobile and Opera Mini 5 beta for a variety of platforms at MWC.
