Opera Mobile browser now available for Android

9 Nov

As promised last week, Opera Mobile web browser is now available for download on the Android Market. Opera Mobile offers a true Internet browser experience and does not compress pages like Opera Mini. Opera Mobile 10.1 beta is the first browser from Opera Software to come with multi-touch support for pinch-to-zoom functionality.

Other features include tabbed browsing (shown in the screen shot on the left), geolocation support, Opera’s Presto rendering engine and the ability to sync bookmarks across devices and PCs using Opera Link. We are currently giving Opera Mobile for Android a spin and will post a review in the coming days.
