Opera Software today announced that the Opera Mini browser for mobile phones is available for the Android platform.
Today?s technical preview release is available at labs.opera.com, inviting the Android development community to test the fresh build and share feedback with Opera for the forthcoming beta.
"Opera Mini will be able to empower users of Android-based handsets with access to all of their favorite Web sites with popular features for smooth effects and scalable, tailored viewing," says Jon von Tetzchner, CEO, Opera Software.
Opera Mini enables Web browsing from low-to-high resource handsets by compressing data at a remote server before sending content to the phone applet for rendering. With a simple, interface, Opera Mini powers features for real, desktop-like Web browsing from a mobile phone, including Small Screen Rendering, Zoom, synced bookmarks and integrated Google search.
