Opera has announced the final version of the Opera Mini 4.2 mobile web browser. Some excerpts from the press release:

With today’s release of Opera Mini 4.2, Indians can now surf the Web in their own language.  The latest prodigy in Opera’s mobile browser family promises to heighten the mobile Web experience due to improvements in speed, video support and Opera Link functionality, in addition to its availability on the Android platform.

Since the launch of the beta version of Opera Mini 4.2 earlier this month, speed trials have shown that this version gives more than 30% speed improvements for users in the US, due to the addition of a new Opera Mini server park in the United States. As a result, Indian users will also benefit from noticeable speed improvements when browsing sites of American or Indian origin.

Opera Mini 4.2 has special significance for the Indian market, as the browser is now available in 12 different languages native to India.
