Opera Mini & Mobile finally leave beta

The native Opera Mobile 10 and the Java-based Opera Mini 5 have finally graduated from their long standing beta status, with Opera Software officially announcing that the two applications are now "consumer ready". There's a quote and introduction video embedded below. Both work on all Symbian smartphones.

Read on in the full article.

In-line T9

I recently downloaded the beta, and I was not impressed that it did not have in-line T9 (you had to turn off the in-line feature, then use T9). Just installed the final release and noticed that there is in-line T9. That was my biggest complaint. The T9 now also allows you to have the "Abc" setting, which I did not see in the beta.

Must try. Using Opera Turbo, it's fast.
Although I like the previous UI better..

Renders beautifully on the E90 ; significant improvement on the Beta versions.

Inline editing *works*. Very nice typeface, with proper antialiasing. Changed the zoom to 100% and the internal screen is a dream to use.

Superb stuff from Opera. Definitely worth the download. The E90 isn't as spankingly quick as it should be, but Mobile 10 gives it a new lease of life.

Just installed it on my i8910.. so far, The splashscreen is now the same as that on the java version, and I feel it's much faster now (I always leave opera turbo off). the opera keyboard also seems MUCH MUCH more accurate, I'm typing much faster now

pardon my ignorance, but what is the difference? it is only a one click seting to toggle on/off the inline t9 vs the full qwerty keyboard. have we become so lazy that we need something turned on or off for us by default? at least the option is there! :cheers:

Question Can has Feeds?

Is it me or is there no longer a section for RSS feeds? This is the only reason I've stayed with the old version - have tried all recent betas and no joy. You can still "Subscribe" to the feeds but I've no idea how you get at them! Tried Skyfire but it's just not quitr right.

I haven't tried Flash on it.

Have tried Silverlight - sadly Silverlight doesn't support Opera. I'd hazard a guess that Opera doesn't support Flash as well.

Lol, its just like having an iPhone in many ways

"pardon my ignorance, but what is the difference?"

I'm no expert here, but when in the beta you did not have T9 in-line text entry. To enable T9, you had to turn off the in-line option. As such, a S60 text entry box would appear at the bottom of the screen. From here you can enter text with T9. However, there was no option for "Abc". Which means that you can't get a capital letter unless you enable "ABC", type the letter, then switch it back to "abc". Even after a period you did not get a capital letter by default. It was a hassle.

Finally you can set a default access point - excellent!

Mini 5 has great usability, nice looks but it’s slow to navigate through it and it often closes itself as a result of feeding on memory.error messages reads “out of memory”. One bug that they haven't fixed yet in Opera Mini: To use the Char key in a text field, you have to switch to fullscreen edit. This is annoying when entering passwords with non-alphanumeric characters. This bug does not exist in Opera Mobile.

I have always preferred Opera Mobile (native app) to Opera Mini (java app), since IMO, java apps seem to be memory hogs and rarely seem to release the memory that they use.

Love Opera Mobile. Dont know how I would have enjoyed mobile surfing without it.
