  • Opera was more popular than Safari in May. Well, we should point out that Opera Mobile and Opera Mini teamed up to achieve the feat. According to the web analytics from Stat Counter, 24.6% of the web pages have been downloaded with Opera browsers, while “only” 22.3% using Safari. It also might be interesting to know that Nokia’s mobile browser came out third with 17.9%.

I have already played with the Rival and it is crap...the Exilim is pretty cool though very unexpected from Casio lol. It is very thick but I appreciate it. Thumbs down to Motorola again its so sad to see a company fall so short and not be able to pick themselves up. They are a dying company there is just to much competition out there and they have not been competitors
