Opera Mobile 9.5 beta released into the wilds
Earlier we brought you news that Opera Mobile 9.5 was nearing beta stage. Well it's finally here (Touchscreen-based devices only).
Today, it's out for a beta 1 launch. In other words, it'll be buggy but likely far more useful than the browser already installed on your touchscreen-based (PocketPC) WinMo professional phone. The initial release includes support for double-tap zoom, landscape flip, off-line page save, tab-like browsing, auto-URL complete, and a Google-search bar to name just a few of the 9.5 features.
Additional functionality will be added later including Google Gears and support for Flash video on WinMo and Symbian devices.
