opera-mini-logoOpera Mini for Android was in beta stage since November 2008, but the Opera team has finally made it live, the final Opera Mini 4.2 for Google Android.

It is is an award-winning  Java-based web browser for mobile phones, which is being used by more than 44 million people!

Android is currently running on T-Mobile G1, and Opera Mini 4.2, with a few feature additions and improvements, have been released for this mobile phone and is said to be faster than the default Chrome (web browser) that comes in Android.
