No Opera Mini on the iPhone? Try an Android phone instead!

You probably won't find Opera Mini in the iPhone App Store any time soon, but there's good news for people with Android phones: A beta of Opera Mini 4.2 is now available for download at the Android Market.

Apparently Opera Mini is the first alternative browser for the platform, but I'm sure more browsers are coming.

What's good about Opera Mini is that it saves you money by pre-processing and compressing data before downloading it to the phone, and it saves you time if you have a slow connection. So Opera Mini definitely has a place even on phones with an existing browser.

  1. Opera Mini seems to load sites more quickly on my G1 than the bundled Chrome, but page scrolling isn't nearly as smooth. Hopefully this will be worked out in the future.
