Ultrabrief: Opera Mini 5 and Opera Mobile 10 are no longer beta

Opera Mini 5 and Opera Mobile 10 are finally final, but not for all platforms. Here’s the snippet from the press release you care about:

Opera Mini 5 is available on all Java-based and BlackBerry phones, as well as Android and Windows Mobile (both in beta only) phones. Opera Mobile 10 is available on Windows Mobile and Symbian S60-based mobile phones.

So while I’d love to do a review of the finished version of Opera Mini 5, I can’t because I have a Nexus One. I wonder if Opera is doing this out of spite for what I said about Opera Mini 5, short answer: no, but I honestly hope that the Norwegian winter lasts just a little bit longer so those programming vikings can fix the terrible font rendering that plagues the Android version.

How do you get these applications? Type m.opera.com into your mobile browser and rock and roll. Highly recommended if you have an older device, or are stuck in a country that has spotty, or even no, 3G service.
