MWC10 is set to kick off in Barcelona next week where Opera plans to unveil more of Opera-powered devices. Just today morning, I tweeted about having Opera Mini for Android. Now I hope they also include the Android version for MWC10.

According to Opera, their mobile web browser for iPhone – Opera Mini – will be six times faster than the default browser, Safari. Opera Mini for iPhone app is yet to be submitted to the App Store for approval.

Once approved, Opera hopes that iPhone users will move from the stock iPhone browser, Safari, to the new and way more faster Opera Mini. And they also claim to reduce the data costs by 90% using Opera software technologies.

  • After test for months both browsers, Opera Mini in a N95, and the Safari on the iPhone, I have to say that the Safari enables a smooth and pleasant navigation, but it is frustrating that not be able to play Flash and especially not storing the websites visited in the cache.
