Opera Mini 6 For Iphone, Ipad And Verizon Phones: Hands On

Mobile browser company Opera is about to vault Verizon’s low-cost phones out of the Internet stone age, and is bringing a new browser to iPhones, iPads and Android phones. I got some time with the new browser and I’m quite thrilled.

The large news is actually for all these Verizon phones – the LG EnV and Octane sort stuff, the phones which have been stuck with a genuinely abysmal WAP browser for years.Verizon has lastly come to its senses and will be dropping Opera Mini onto new feature phones, Opera founder Jon von Tetzchner stated.

I checked out the “Verizon version” of Opera Mini which was oddly operating on an Android phone in Opera’s booth, but von Tetzchner assured me that the expertise would be related across several kinds of phones. It’s Opera Mini, which is wonderful: it delivers very good-hunting, true-to-life Web pages that load very rapidly (as they’re very compressed), with dynamic zooming that reformats columns of text to be much more readable on low-resolution screens. The only modify from other Opera versions is a pre-loaded set of Verizon bookmarks.

I cannot express to what extent Opera Mini absolutely murders the WAP and Web browsers we’ve observed on Verizon feature phones so far. Verizon’s lineup has had a mixture of slow, awkward, and difficult-to-use Web browsers. Opera Mini is swift, clean, and clear, with an simple to use address bar, and it renders most desktop pages with gorgeous clarity.

The firm also showed Opera Mini 6, which will run on the iPad, iPhone, Android phones and a variety of higher-end function phones. The new version has pinch-to-zoom on devices with multitouch screens, it has tabs which seem as web page thumbnails, and it has extremely smooth scrolling. It works extremely similarly on all the diverse types of gadgets, which Von Tetzchner said was 1 of Opera’s targets.

“We want to do almost everything we’re carrying out, but greater,” Von Tetzchner stated.

AT&ampT’s function phones became significantly a lot more usable when they switched to Opera Mini as their Net browser, so I’m satisfied to see Verizon is generating the exact same decision. AT&ampT’s existing phones may not be in a position to be upgraded to Opera Mini 6, but the new browser will come on AT&ampT’s new Brew MP phones.

Tetzchner mentioned he anticipates Verizon function-phone users will start browsing the Net 10 to 20 times as a lot as they did just before Opera Mini, primarily based on the statistics he’s observed when Opera Mini was implemented on other carriers. But simply because Opera Mini compresses information by up to 90%, customers won’t consume a lot of a lot more megabytes than they did just before.

Opera Mobile 11, meanwhile, is also coming to Android phones. Opera Mobile is Opera Mini’s massive brother. Opera Mini requests photos of pages from a server in Iceland, which renders them and then passes them down, compressed, to phones. Opera Mobile actually runs the rendering engine on your phone.

The most striking point about Opera 11 on Android is how significantly it looks like Opera Mini 6. In some of my screen shots I could not inform them apart. There’s one particular huge difference, even though: Opera Mobile functions a lot greater with dynamic content material, and Opera Mobile supports Flash.

“With Opera Mini, we’re focused on the quickest speed and the least information usage. If you want Flash … the best thing is to get Opera Mobile,” Tetzchner stated.

Windows Phone 7 isn’t at the moment on Opera’s roadmap, but the Microsoft-Nokia deal has caused Opera to start seeking at the platform far more closely. An Opera browser on Windows Phone would most likely be Mini rather than Mobile, even though, as Microsoft’s Silverlight API may possibly not help writing a true on-device browser such as Opera Mobile.

“We’ll see how the platform goes. With the support of Nokia, Windows Phone is clearly searching like a far more viable platform,” Tetzchner said.

Even with Opera Mini six coming to market place, Opera hasn’t forgotten folks with older phones, von Tetzchner stated. To help the millions of older phones nonetheless in use, Opera will hold establishing Opera Mini 4, which runs even on phones a number of years old.

“There are phones in emerging countries which individuals use for 5, six, even 7 years,” he stated.
