Opera Mini 10.1 Beta Released for Symbian Series 60 Phones

It looks like the Opera Mobile lovin’ isn’t stopping anytime soon. Last week we reported on Opera Mini 5.1 being optimized for low end devices, and now we just received word that Opera Mobile 10.1 beta is now available for Symbian S60 phones.

So what exactly is new in Opera Mobile 10.1 beta? Well, since you asked so politely, I’ll be more than happy to let you know. First off, it’s bringing the same engine power as the desktop version of Opera to a Symbian S60 smartphone near you. With its powerful Presto rendering engine, Vega graphics library, and Carakan Javascript engine, Opera Mobile 10.1 beta will now be as powerful as the desktop version. The inclusion of desktop features like Speed Dial, Opera Link, and password manager make the experience even more desktop-like.

Opera Mobile 10.1 beta also features geolocation, tabbed browsing, a virtual keyboard, kinetic scrolling, and auto-rotation for landscape mode. It also allows users who might be plagued with a slow connection to use Opera Turbo, which enables the browser to use Opera’s servers to compress webpages on the fly, helping to boost page load times considerably.

Now that you’ve heard all of the goods, I bet you’re wondering where you can pick up this gem of an update. Lucky for you, I’ve got the link right in this article. Unlucky for you I’m feeling like a jerk today, so I secretly embedded it somewhere in this article. I challenge anyone to find it!
