Opera announced the latest versions of its mobile web browsers, Opera Mini 6 and Opera Mobile 11. The Opera Mini 6 browser works on devices using Android, Blackberry, Symbian/Series 60 and J2ME operating systems. Opera Mobile 11 works on Android, Symbian, Windows 7 and Meego.
Opera Mini 6
Android users can download Opera Mini 6 for free from the Android Market.
A fresh new look
Opera Mini 6 sports a new and improved design, including a new skin, and new zoom and jump buttons for easy touch-navigation.
Share links directly to major social network sites as you browse, directly from Opera Mini 6.
Click any Mobile YouTube video to launch it directly on your device’s native media player (if available).
Improved zoom for touch screens
Pinch-to-zoom is now supported for multitouch devices. Regular touch devices now zoom with a double-tap, or with Opera’s new zoom buttons.
Tailored to Tablets
We’ve designed a new user interface especially for tablet users.
