Opera Mobile 10 beta for Windows Mobile now available

I was a bit surprised when Opera launched the public beta of Opera Mobile 10 first for Symbian devices since we have seen this browser always launch on Windows Mobile touchscreen devices in the past. Good news for all of you touchscreen Windows Mobile owners though as Opera announced the release of the Opera Mobile 10 for Windows Mobile today.

Opera Mobile 10 for Windows Mobile has the following features:

  • Opera Turbo support so you can use their servers to reduce bandwidth and increase speed
  • Speed Dial for faster access to your favorite sites
  • Password manager
  • Tabbed browsing
  • Kinetic scrolling
  • Auto-rotation
  • Adaptive zoom

I prefer Opera Mobile on my WM devices because it gives me a full web experience and has more power and functionality than Internet Explorer Mobile. Opera Mobile is even more powerful than the Safari browser on the iPhone. Opera Mobile 10 beta works on both Classic and Professional editions of Windows Mobile 6.5, Windows Mobile 6.1, Windows Mobile 6.0 and on Windows Mobile 5 Pocket PC. If you have a Symbian device you can also try out Opera Mobile 10 beta.
