New beta of Opera Mobile launched
Opera has released a new beta version of its Mobile browser.
Opera Mobile 9.5, which was first announced at the Mobile World Congress in February, will be available for public beta from today.
The browser includes a revamped user interface, that makes it much easier to skim around full web pages.
The new software also offers performance improvements, with pages rendering up to 18 seconds faster using a GPRS connection, in PC Pro’s tests.
Opera Mobile 9.5 will be made available for Windows Mobile, Symbian and Linux-based smartphones, although the first beta will only work with devices running Windows Mobile 5 or 6.
Opera Mobile shouldn’t be confused with Opera Mini, the company’s other mobile browser that works with even the most rudimentary of handsets.
