Here's the update in action on the Nokia 808 PureView:


The previous (left) and new (right) versions of Opera Mini on Symbian/S60. The differences in nomenclature ("7.03" versus "7.00(32400)") are a little off-putting, but don't worry too much - just install it and be happy!


In action, showing Opera Mini now working fine in split-screen mode entering text into a web input field. Right, the main interface and graphical menu remain unchanged.

Highly recommended, as always! The update will work with all modern S60/Symbian devices.
