Opera Mini 5 beta released for BlackBerry and Java phones

Summary:One of the things I enjoy about my Windows Mobile, Android, and Symbian devices is the ability to load up different 3rd party web browsers and today we see that the latest version of Opera Mini 5 beta has been released for installation.

This latest beta of Opera Mini includes support for tabbed browsing, speed dial (one click favorites), optimizations for touchscreen and keypad devices, and a password manager.

One aspect I love about Opera Mini is the ability to login to My Opera and have all my bookmarks appear across mobile platforms.
