Opera Mini 5 beta for Android released

Opera Software has launched the newest beta version of the browser for mobile phones, Opera Mini 5, on the Android platform. Opera Mini 5 beta for Android brings a fast and cost efficient web experience to any handset built on the Android platform.

Opera Mini, with more than 50 million users worldwide, enables web browsing on almost any handset by compressing data by up to 90% before sending content to the phone, resulting in significantly improved page loading and speed.

With a simple, easy to use interface, Opera Mini offers a desktop-like web browsing experience on a mobile phone, with favourite features such as Speed Dial, tabbed browsing, password manager and bookmarks. With Opera Mini optimised for Android, more people will be able to get a PC-like browsing experience on their mobile handsets.

“Android users should not have to compromise when it comes to surfing the web on their phones. Opera Mini will give Android users a fast and cost efficient access to their favourite web sites and services,” said Dag Olav Norem, vice president of products, Opera Software.
