My previous blog post asking for AT&T to "nudge" Apple into accepting Opera onto the iPhone was apparently published a bit prematurely!
Now it looks like beating the drum about Opera Mini for the iPhone actually worked.
According to Norwegian IT site Digi, Apple gave Opera a call (Norwegian) after the announcement. They seemed to have noticed the massive attention around the announcement, and now wanted to offer their cooperation.
If what the article says is true, then that is certainly good news for iPhone owners. It's also an encouraging sign to see Apple being willing to work with other companies to bring their users and customers a wider range of App Store applications.
