Opera Mini 4 comes out of beta to deliver the web to your mobile phone

Summary: One of the areas that people complain about most when it comes to mobile devices is the poor web browsing experience. The Apple iPhone provides users with a very good mobile experience, except for the EDGE wireless data connectivity. For owners of other mobile devices, Opera provides a free and very capable browser in Opera Mini. Opera Mini 4 has been in beta for a few months and has lived on my mobile devices, including Windows Mobile, S60, and BlackBerry devices. Opera just announced that Opera Mini 4 is out of beta and available now as a full release.

You can check out all the details of the improvements at the Opera Mini blog. Some of the great new features are support for Opera Link (wirelessly sync your bookmarks and speed dial to your Opera desktop version), landscape switching, support for native BlackBerry menus, virtual mouse mode, scrolling shortcuts, and more. You can download it directly via your phone's browser, use your PC, or have a SMS link sent to your phone.

    • WANT FLASH SUPPORT (repost)

      FULL flash support. Not only YouTube, but AddictingGames and a whole lot of the Web runs Flash. With my touchscreen Treo I oughta be able to play any game, see any video, use any website. Same goes for the iPhone. They didn't implement Flash, they strongarmed YouTube in to posting files in dual format!

      the first smartphone that delivers Flash in its latest iteration will get my $$$$$.

      • Windows mobile has supported flash for ages

        It doesn't come with it, but you can download flash for Windows Mobile from Adobe's website.

  • Awesome mobile browser

    I've been using the betas for awhile now and I love it. It's just like that mobile browser you have to buy a $400 phone to get - only it's free.

    • That Unmentionable $400 phone...

      ...doesn't have Java support. Oh well.
      Mini 4 works well on my Nokia N95.

      • Beleive it or not...

        ..I've been using it on my Nokia 5300 XpressMusic phone. The 5300 is a cheap music phone that is locked by T-Mobile not to allow third party apps to connect to the network.

        I found some instructions on the net on how to hack the phone so that third party apps work - so I'm able to use Opera Mini/Google Maps and a myriad of other j2ME apps on my this cheapo $49 phone - and because the phone is "locked", t-Mobile only charges 5.99 a month for an unlimited data plan.
