Opera Mobile 10 Beta for Android caught on video
Still waiting for a manufacturer to load up an Android handset with Opera Mobile 10, the software-which was announced last year-remains on the sidelines in beta form. While Opera Mini 4.2 is listed in the Android Market now with an upgrade to 5.0 imminent, limitations of the Android NDK keep the much more capable Opera Mobile from being a choice to be added as an app. So right now, the only way to get the Mobile version of the browser on an Android device would be if Opera can get an OEM to load it on a phone. Opera product analyst Phillip Granvold said his company is talking to several big Android makers, but refused to name names. For what it's worth, the phones used in the video below is the HTC built Nexus One. Granvold is hoping that the Opera Mobile 10 browser will make it onto an Android flavored handset before the end of this year.
