Opera Mobile 10 and Mini 5 leave the beta stage
Both applications spent quite a lot of time in beta stage, but the company has now announced that the development of Opera Mobile 10 and Opera Mini 5 has been completed and they are ready for the wide audience. Great news, right? Cool! Sadly, however... the final editions do not support all mobile platforms. Opera Mobile 10 is available for Windows Mobile and Symbian S60, while Opera Mini 5 will bring joy to owners of Java-based and BlackBerry cell phones. We remind you that Opera Mini 5 beta for Android rolled out last week (take a look at our hands-on with the application here), while a Java-free version of Opera for Windows Mobile had appeared earlier. The latter editions are not finalized yet, but we expect to see this happen soon.
The official versions of Opera Mobile 10 and Opera Mini 5 can be downloaded via this link.

Browser is great but it doesn't seem to be zooming. You can set the standard zoom in the options but no tap to zoom? It did in the BETA version. Did Opera take this out? If so, bad call. With no pinch to zoom or zoom buttons, I really need that. Also, they really could have beefed up the amount of changeable settings. Not much customization here. But it still is the best option as of yet.

just downloaded it onto the 9700 and wow, it's crazy laggy, so much to where I'm preferring the default BBerry browser. Maybe it's not optimized for a track pad?
