Opera Mobile 10 now available for Maemo

A great thing about Nokia devices is the open support for 3rd party applications, both within the Ovi Store and through outside locations. I received word this morning that Opera Mobile has come to Maemo in early beta form and can be downloaded now for your Nokia N800/N810/N900. After seeing a Tweet on this I immediately popped my SIM back in my N900 and download the new web browser to give it a go. I plan to work on a video review and post it later here on the site along with more thoughts on actual usage.

So far, I am pretty impressed with the browser and was very pleased to see it looks like the other Opera Mobile versions on other smartphone platforms. I like seeing Opera Turbo and Opera Link support and have my bookmarks all synced up already. The browser appears to be quite fast and works well so far. The one thing I have not found is a way to zoom in closer to the text so I will be searching for the zoom controls soon.

We now have the awesome default browser, Firefox Mobile, and Opera Mobile to choose from on the N900. With these three options, there should be no limitations to browsing on the go with the N900.

Don’t forget Google Chrome (Chromium). It’s not official though but the port is available by Jacekowski.

wow very nice! it is much faster than firefox or microB. however Midori/Tear is also available. Anyway I think that 3 out the 4 browser engines are available now on the N900 (webkit/konqueror, mozilla gecko and opera).

So far looks like Opera will be my main browser except for when I want to go to flash sites or google maps. Opera should also be commended for a really good on screen keyboard (especially in portrait mode) . If it was multi-touch it would be as fast as an Iphone. To me it is much better than the current pr 1.1 or pr 1.2 base versions.

Just put this on my N800. This is the fastest browser i’ve used on it. I can’t believe just how much faster it is than Firefox. My device feels like i’ve just upgraded the processor!

I regularly follow your blog, well i used to, and its not a blog by a nokia enthusiast anymore. the faster you admit it and let somebody else handle the job, the more chances for the continued survival of this blog. cheers.

Any hope for a flash plugin? Any hope for a more flexible zoom – on N800 with dedicated buttns? Any hope for a national keyboard ? Any hope for auto word completition ?

All that would make it even more usefull!

[...] Opera Mobile 10 was released for Maemo back in May and now we see a version of Opera Mobile 10.1 for S60 3rd and 5th Edition devices. While Opera Mini is a great browser alternative for S60 devices, Opera Mobile takes browsing to the next level and is most likely going to be even better than the default S60 browser that is getting a bit long in the tooth. This latest Opera Mobile 10.1 beta browser brings faster speeds and geolocation capabilities to your device. I plan to download and install it on the Nokia E73 Mode soon and will post an article here on how it performs. [...]
