Opera Mini serves up 1 petabyte of data in January 2009

Even though I have mobile phones with powerful web browsers, such as the G1 browser and S60 browser, I still go back to using Opera Mini the majority of the time. I like that I can login to my Opera Link account and have the same bookmarks on every device I use with no real effort on my part. I also find the speed to be excellent and the shortcuts and viewability to be extremely useful and attractive. On my G1 I can cache data to the storage card while the integrated browser consumes all of my onboard memory. Opera just released their latest State of the Mobile Web report for January 2009. Usage of Opera Mini went up 12.2% to 20 million unique users.

Opera Mini 4.2 for Android brings microSD support and video viewing capability

As I pointed out in a recent post regarding the current firmware on the T-Mobile G1 Google Android device there is a major issue with not being able to store applications or content onto the external microSD card. I get low memory errors daily and if I browse a lot with the device my browser cache fills up to 10MB+. Then when I delete the data I lose all my history, bookmarks, etc. and this really limits my usage of the G1. Opera thankfully announced today that its Opera Mini 4.2 product for the Android platform is out of beta already and available as a full release in the Android Market.
