Opera Software has announced the worldwide release of Opera Mini, a full Web browser based on Java, that runs on almost every mobile phone, including low- and mid-end handsets.
Opera Mini is available free of charge via WAP download, or for a small fee via SMS. Users can simply send an SMS or direct the phone's WAP browser to http://mini.opera.com.
The software compresses Web pages by up to 80% and reformats them using Opera's Small-Screen Rendering technology for easy and fast browsing on small, mobile screens. For the end-user, this means faster browsing and dramatically reduced phone bills for those who pay per KB in data traffic.
Opera Mini's start page features a Google search box for quick access to Web search. And the customizable bookmark list makes it easy to save and surf your favorite sites.
Opera Mini is available in the following languages: English, German, Spanish, French, Russian, Polish, Norwegian, Swedish, Danish, Finnish. More languages will be available shortly.
