Opera Mini 4.2 Beta Now Available!

Opera Mini used to get a ton of coverage here on the CrackBerry blogs and in the CrackBerry forums, seeing as how it was basically a necessity for BlackBerry users and all, but with RIM's new and improved web browser the need for Opera Mini has really diminished (IMHO).

That said, a ton of you are still rocking and loving Opera Mini, and version 4.2 beta is now available for download! Improvements to 4.2 include:Skins

  • Personalize - Opera Mini by choosing a new colorful skin. We have reintroduced the popular skinning feature from Opera Mini 3.
  • Performance - Opera Mini 4.2 can use our newly established server park in the US. This means significantly faster page downloads for our users in the Americas and Asia-Pacific region. Users in the rest of the world will also experience faster page downloads since we've reduced the load on our other servers.
  • Video - We are working to make video content available on more phones through Opera Mini. If you have a new Sony Ericsson or Nokia phone, the chance is high that you can take Opera Mini for a spin on m.youtube.com.
  • Sync your Notes - The handy Notes functionality from the Opera Desktop Web browser just got more portable through Opera Link. All of your notes are available in Opera Mini directly from the Bookmarks menu.

For more info you can visit operamini.com/beta or to download point your BlackBerry's browser to mini.opera.com/beta to download OTA.
