Forbes on Must-Have Mobile Software, but no Opera Mini/Mobile

Forbes has a story on Must-Have Mobile Software, but Opera doesn't seem to be mentioned at all.

The author does mention browsers in general, though. She doesn't like them.

Mobile browsers are getting better, but can be a pain, especially if you aren't paying for an ultra speedy cellular data connection.

It doesn't sound like she has tried Opera Mini, which is surprising for a list of "Must-Have Mobile Software", seeing as Opera Mini has frequently been mentioned as a must-have by other publications. Opera Mini compresses pages before displaying them, which means that it is faster, and costs less if you don't have an unlimited data plan.

I wonder if it would be worth trying to contact the author, Rachel Rosmarin, about this. Perhaps she is simply not aware of Opera Mini or even Opera Mobile?

On the other hand, she does seem to like widgets, which will make her happy with Opera 9 for Mobile when that becomes available.

  1. I wonder if it would be worth trying to contact the author…

    Go for it :up: Sure, what harm?

  2. It looks like one can contact the author by clicking her name. Her contact details appear if you do.

  3. Just a couple of weeks ago, a Norwegian news paper had it on its top 10 list. But it is in Norwegian, and not sure if I would be allowed to translate parts or the whole article to English. Feels like I need a lawyer to surf the web these days :(- ØØ –

  4. I left a comment to the editor about that article today. Told them there's never been a better time to try Opera Mini out due to the upcoming beta and that it's strange that the most useful application was omitted from the article.

  5. Nice, tell us if you get any feedback, although I won't expect it to happen. Usually those editors get so many random e-mails for every article they write, they end up answering non. Crossing my fingers though.- ØØ –
