Opera Software has released Opera Mini v2.0, the new version of the smartphone web browser that runs on almost every mobile phone including the Palm Treo. The new version of Opera Mini supports downloading MP3s, improved bookmarks, saving images and other Web content directly to their mobile device.
New features in Opera Mini 2.0 include:
- Content download: Download images, MP3s, etc. directly to the phone.
- New skins: Make Opera Mini your own by selecting from several new and bold skins to suit your mood.
- Multisearch: Opera Mini offers advanced searching functionality by allowing users to select extra search engines for the home page.
- Speed dial: Bookmarks displayed on the home page are assigned a shortcut key combination, giving users faster and easier access to their favorite sites.
- Visual navigation: Quick and smooth horizontal panning when browsing backwards or forwards.
Opera Mini now supports seamless mobile commerce via SMS. For example, users can click directly on the Web site to purchase ringtones, games and other content which will then be delivered as an SMS. The charge will appear in the phone bill as an SMS with the price set by the seller. This form of mobile commerce - direct from the browser to SMS - simplifies the transaction for both the business and the consumer.
