Back at MWC 2010 earlier this year, Opera demonstrated its Mini browser for the iPhone. Now with CTIA coming up, the Norway based software company is once again showing off why iPhone users should be using Opera Mini for the iPhone instead of the native mobile Safari program. At the same time, the company will show off Opera Mini 5 for Android devices. Exactly when Opera Mini for the iPhone will launch is not known, but this will be the first time that the browser will be allowed to have photographs and video taken of it. Even with all of this commotion relating to the browser, Apple could decide to block it from the App Store since the program basically mimics the Safari program on the handset. Many iPhone users would probably like the opportunity to try Opera Mini, so it might be a bad political move for Cupertino to block it.
Also on display at the show will be final versions of Opera Mini 5 and Opera Mobile 10 on many top handset platforms like Symbian S60, Windows Mobile 6.5 and the BlackBerry OS. The two browsers were released earlier this week which brought to market Opera's new UI and feature set. Opera will also showcase work it has been doing on widgets and cross-platform solutions. The company will also unveil widgets that can be used on featurephones and other types of devices with limited capacity.Apple iPhone 3GS Specifications
