Opera is going to unveil a version of its mobile web browser for the Apple iPhone, Opera Mini, which will be unveiled at the 2010 Mobile World Congress in Barcelona next week.
This is obviously a publicity stunt by Opera to gather attention for its new Opera Mini browser for mobile phones, although Opera expects to get the application approved by Apple, although it hasn’t been submitted to Apple as yet.
It will be interesting to see if Apple actually approve the Opera Mini browser application for the iPhone, although it looks like Apple’s stance on other browsers on the iPhone has changed over the last few month, so there is a chance that Opera Mini for the iPhone may be approved.
According to Opera, the Opera Mini browser for the iPhone is up to six times faster than the iPhones native browser, and it also uses compression technology that apparently will reduce bandwidth.
According to Opera the compression technology could help users reduce their browsing bandwidth by up to ninety percent. As soon as well know more details on the application we will let you know.
