Opera Mini Goes Native On Windows Mobile Phones

You might have been happily using Opera Mini on your Windows Mobile powered phone for some time now, but it looks like things are going to get a lot better, as Opera Software has officially launched a native version of Opera Mini 5 beta for WinMob 5 and WinMob 6 devices (download link). Opera Mini previously required Java, but with the latest native version, users should see a significant performance increase from the browser. In case you didn’t already know, Opera Mini compresses the data on the server side before transferring it to your phone, which helps significantly improve page loading time, as well as reduce the amount of data used, which is especially beneficial if you’re on a pay-per-MB data plan.

Press release.
