Can’t get no satisfaction from the mobile Web? Then you will fall head over heels for the new Opera Mini and Opera Mobile browsers launched today, now also available to cherish on tablets.

What’s new, pussycat?

Smooth operator

Improved scrolling, panning and zooming make the Opera Mini and Opera Mobile browsers the sweetest thing to hit mobile devices since the Opera Mini 5 browser.


Feel free to twist and shout now that Opera’s features include true pinch-to-zoom on devices that support pinch.


When you find something, let it be … shared. The new versions feature a share button, so you can easily post, Tweet (twiddly-diddly-deet), or just shout it out loud on Facebook, vKontakte or My Opera.

Now also optimized for tablets

Is it any wonder? Opera for tablets brings smooth browsing to your tablet PC with a brand new interface that is sure to rock you like a hurricane.

What we say

“If you’ve lost that loving feeling for the Web on your phone or tablet, don’t let it bring you down. Just try one of our browsers,” said Lars Boilesen, CEO, Opera Software. “The sun always shines on TV, but the Opera browser shines on more than 3000 devices.”

Who are you? The difference between the Opera Mini and Opera Mobile browsers

  • The Opera Mini browser uses Opera’s servers to shake, rattle and roll webpages down to a tenth of their original size before sending them to your phone. Because the data transferred is smaller, pages arrive faster than the speed of sound. On a pay-as-you-go plan, the Opera Mini browser dramatically cuts the price you pay, because the data you use is greatly reduced. The Opera Mini browser makes any device Internet savvy.
  • The Opera Mobile browser gives you the whole of the moon on smartphones and tablets. The strange magic of HTML5? Check. Full, high fidelity web browsing? Check. Sharing the same Opera Presto browser engine found in Opera’s desktop browser, the Opera Mobile browser is the premier option for fast, powerful browsing when on unlimited Internet data plans or Wi-Fi.


  • The Opera Mini 6 browser brings the fireworks to J2ME, Android, BlackBerry and Symbian/S60 phones.
  • The Opera Mobile 11 browser sings hallelujah on the Android, Symbian, Windows 7 desktop (labs release), MeeGo (labs release) and Maemo (labs release) platforms.

What you waiting for? Walk this way with your mobile device:


  1. Great News! I just downloaded and installed Opera 11.1 for my computer this morning. Now I can install the mobile versions on my phones! Opera scores a hat-trick in my Online Life today. Yippee!!

  2. Installing Opera Mini 6 [International] over OperaMini 5 preserved my settings, bookmarks, history, and saved files.

    The UI is the familiar one but better polished, and features a new Opera button at the lower right corner.

    Under Settings, there’s a new option for Text Wrapping.

    I wish they brought back an older feature of choosing the location of saved files [NOT Downloaded Files o!]. It would make it easier to share transfer such files to my other phones.

  3. Finally, I can now search Wikipedia directly from the Home screen!

    This feature was strangely missing when using OMini 5 on touchscreen-only phones.

    I hope I don’t experience all those crashes I experienced when using OMini5 on the N8.

  4. Glo is slightly ok. I hope they keep to their claim of no hidden charges. And maybe this move might spur them to add to †?? bandwidth available for bis subscription.

  5. @spacyzuma

    Siily me I also installed the Opera Mini 6 [International] over OperaMini 5 and it preserved my settings but I decided to do a total uninstall because the new opera was still named as opera mini 5 on my phone.

    Unfortunately for me the name it now shows is just “Opera Mini”

  6. nice cute browser…is there a java variant of this? Opera didnt display the java variant for download..only the symbian version..

  7. guess mtn didnt ve much choice afterall…where’s eyebeekay..MR UCBROWSER! Lol…

  8. Omini 6 comes with a link to Opera Maps on Tab 8 on the home screen.

    Just checked out it out, and Nigeria is one of the 14 nations listed [others are Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Norway, Russia, South Africa, Sweden, Ukraine, UK, USA]

    It links to an online map with 7 levels of zoom.

    Opera tried with this map idea. It’s still no match for Ovi Maps, sha.

  9. I just downloaded the v11 and am rocking … While updating I was praying my bookmarks should not be deleted, I guess those guys are smarter than that. The UI is beautiful and the zoom button, omg make life easire.
    Anytime anyday, I’ll always prefer SkyFire to Opera, only if Skyfire was still in Nigeria

  10. I have been a user of opera mini for a long time now.

    Opera mini 6 is lighter, supports sharing of link directly from the broswers. If I am reading an article I can just share by clicking the option button. This was one function I liked with blackberry. Thanks opera. 😉

  11. The java version is also available
    , Check under other download options. This post is via the java version. When I have sufficient MB, I’ll give the symbian version a try.


  13. Kay123 >> When I have sufficient MB, I’ll give the symbian version a try.

    The symbian Operamini 6 instals on my Nokia5800. But it does NOT connect. Permanently. Is out just me?

    The Operamini 6 Java works. But – I am totally underwhelmed by it. Apart from the ‘Share’ button, how different is it from Version 5?

    Am sticking to my UcWeb 7.6 – until Opera comes up with something really more brilliant!

  14. After 4attempts to install on an E51 with repeated error messages I gave up.
