While the competition is struggling to catch up to us and our mobile browsing technology, we have just widened the gap yet again.
Sure, this sounds like marketing fluff, but it's exactly what is happening. Opera Mini was announced today as a new product with a new revenue model. While the traditional Opera mobile browser needed a fairly capable mobile phone to run, Opera Mini will be able to run on most WAP capable phones, including low-end phones that will now be able to surf the Web with Opera.
So now people with more capable phones can run the best mobile browser, Opera, while those with lower-end phones, or content providers and other groups that want a custom browser which can be installed by just about any of their users, can run the new Opera Mini
