Opera Software unveils Opera Mini for iPhone at MWC 2010

Opera Software announces that they will offer a preview of Opera Mini during the Mobile World Congress (MWC). But it will be only and exclusively for their partners and journalists. Not publicly available, yet.

Opera Software, maker of the world’s most popular mobile Web browser, plans to reveal Opera Mini for iPhone in an exclusive press and partner preview during the 2010 Mobile World Congress (MWC). Visit Opera’s exhibit in Hall 1, C44, to witness a new way to surf the Web on the iPhone — an experience that Opera promises will be fast, easy to use, and packed with favorite Opera features.

Opera Mini is renowned for its compression technology, which results in significantly faster Web-page loading and reduces data surcharges. With favorite desktop features in its arsenal, such as tabs, Speed Dial and the password manager, Opera Mini is designed with usability in mind.

“We are thrilled to offer journalists and partners an exclusive preview of Opera Mini for iPhone during the year’s biggest mobile event,” said Jon von Tetzchner, Co-founder, Opera Software. “This is a unique opportunity to introduce the fast, feature-rich Opera Mini experience for the iPhone, and to showcase our latest beta releases of Opera Mobile and Opera Mini on other platforms and devices. Opera’s mission is to bring the Web to the world, and by making Opera Mini available on yet another platform, we are one step closer.”

While Opera Mini for iPhone is not publicly available, visitors without a press pass will not leave Opera’s stand disappointed. Opera will unveil a host of other Opera-powered devices at its exhibit. Check out the following Opera technology, live from MWC:

* Opera Mobile 10 beta 3 on Symbian S60 and Windows Mobile handsets
* Opera Mobile 10 beta running on Android handsets
* Opera Mini 5 beta, running on a variety of handsets and platforms
* Opera’s cross-platform Widgets Manager beta, running on Windows Mobile and S60 handsets

    Does this step on Apple’s fingers? I didn’t think that apps were allowed if they duplicated functions of already installed apps?

    • daimaou

      Skype Duplicate the iPhone function and has been officially announced for being soon capable to support VoIP on 3G, so we can just hope Opera will have the same treatement.

  • seki

    Yeah .. Apple won’t let this through ..
    I suspect they’re going to build / install adhoc versions .. which will be just fine – slowish process but for the limited numbers of devices they will have to provision shouldn’t be too hard.
