Opera Software is confident that Apple will approve the Opera Mini browser and make it available in the App Store. What do you think?
This is interesting for several reasons. First, Apple has a long history of rejecting apps which it claims duplicate functionality already present on the iPhone. Since the iPhone already has a browser, Opera Mini would seem to offer duplicate functionality, and therefore be a prime candidate for rejection.
However, Opera is also known for being hard-hitting, and unleashed the might of the European Commission on Microsoft over its default inclusion of Internet Explorer in Windows 7. While the company has said that it hasn't given approaching the European Commission "a single second of thought," Apple might well play things safe and allow Opera Mini onto the iPhone.
