Opera Mobile 9.5 beta available to public

Update for Windows Mobile and Symbian phones

Opera has released the first public version of Opera Mobile 9.5 beta, its web browser for smartphones.

The new release - which currently works only on Windows Mobile devices, although the final release will also support Symbian handsets - gives the browser a facelift, with Opera Mobile 9.5 beta defaulting to 'page overview' mode, in which users see the entire web page. Like Opera Mini, Opera Mobile 9.5 allows users to pan and zoom to focus on specific page content.

"Our fans have been eager for the release of Opera Mobile 9.5 since it first appeared at the Mobile World Congress this year," said Opera CEO Jon von Tetzchner. "We are now answering the call of the people and delivering what we proudly proclaim to be our best Opera Mobile browser to date. It is a totally new user experience."

Opera Mobile was first launched in 2000, and Opera claims it has been downloaded over 100 million installations since 2004.

To download the new browser, and to find further details of Opera Mobile 9.5's features, go to this page on Opera's website.
