Opera Mini on the iPhone


We mentioned a few weeks ago that Opera Mini had been submitted to Apple for app store approval and it looked like it would be declined, however its in the app store right now!

It looks like Apple maybe didn’t see the browser as a threat to their own Safari browser?

Anyway, I have had a quick go and it seems to work ok but my early opinions are why would anyone want to use this when the Safari browser does such a great job on the iPhone and iPod touch.

If I feel like it I may do a review at some point so in the meantime here are a few screen shots from my iPod. Like on other platforms the Opera browser does have a nice home page where you can add bookmarks but as you will see in the pictures below its clear which browser looks best.
