Opera Mobile for Android Coming Soon with Pinch to Zoom

Opera is launching the Opera Mobile Browser for Android smartphones within the next month. The new browser will launch with pinch to zoom on Android with more features being added over time, such as hardware acceleration.

Pinch to zoom, if you are not familiar with it, allows users to zoom in to a webpage at incremental levels while pinching or pulling their fingers apart on the screen. This allows users to quickly zoom in to an appropriate level rather than a pre-programed level to read text more easily.

The hardware acceleration is mentioned for the iPhone version although Engadget received an update saying hardware acceleration would make it to the Android version in time.

  1. As Opera mentions, it’s just the beta version. But I really wait to try it.
