Opera has announced that their Opera mini browser for the iPhone and iPod touch is now available in the App Store.
From the press release:
Opera Mini, with more than 50 million users worldwide, enables fast mobile Web browsing by compressing data by up to 90 percent before sending content to the device, resulting in significantly improved page loading. Users of the app will notice an uptake in speed, especially on slower networks such as the 2G Edge network. Surfing the Web with the Opera Mini App on iPhone and iPod touch will also help users save money because of its data compression capabilities. This will hold especially true while the user is incurring roaming charges.
Opera Mini does not work in Saudi Arabia as their servers are blocked by CITC. Opera Mini also doesn’t support Arabic.
Opera Mini is free and can be downloaded from the App Store.
