Choice is always a great thing for consumers – it allows them to make an informed decision about something. The battle between the premier web browsers may be heating up as Opera Software is about to unveil Opera Mini for the iPhone during MWC. There is still a lot to like about mobile Safari of course, but Opera Mini's arrival on the handset may be able to alleviate the heavy data usage that most owners tend to accrue. Renowned for their compression technology, which results in faster load pages and reduces data surcharges, it's going to take a lot to convince Apple in approving the app. In recent weeks we've slowly started seeing Apple make some uncanny moves in the wake of their iPad unveiling – such as the green light for VoIP services and live streaming over a 3G connection. Opera may have seemingly grasped a wide range of audiences thanks to its availability on a myriad of platforms, but it'll still need to pass through Apple's approval process in order to be greeted to a new class of customers.
