Apple iPhone to get Opera Mini Browser App

Opera will be unveiling Opera Mini for the Apple iPhone at Mobile World Congress this month. The company promise that they will offer a fast and easy to use way of connecting your iPhone to the internet.

To achieve the speed Opera will use it’s own compression technology to shrink pages down and load them up faster. As well as providing good page load speeds, the smaller pages also allow for lesser data transfer to be used which in some cases, could help you stay with in your limits.

Features included in the iPhone Opera Mini application are tabs, speed dial and a password manager.

‘We are thrilled to offer journalists and partners an exclusive preview of Opera Mini for iPhone during the year’s biggest mobile event, said Jon von Tetzchner, Co-founder, Opera Software. ‘This is a unique opportunity to introduce the fast, feature-rich Opera Mini experience for the iPhone, and to showcase our latest beta releases of Opera Mobile and Opera Mini on other platforms and devices. Opera’s mission is to bring the Web to the world, and by making Opera Mini available on yet another platform, we are one step closer.

Also at MWC this month Opera will show off it’s browser on a number of other mobile phones…
* Opera Mobile 10 beta 3 on Symbian S60 and Windows Mobile handsets
* Opera Mobile 10 beta running on Android handsets
* Opera Mini 5 beta, running on a variety of handsets and platforms
* Opera’s cross-platform Widgets Manager beta, running on Windows Mobile and S60 handsets

Although it’s an interesting press release it does make you wonder if it’s real and if they do plan on showing Opera on the iPhone and actually plan to release it any time soon.
