Opera Mini 6 and Opera Mobile 11 was released today. We issued a press release with a lot of known (and not quite so known) music references. Can you find them all? We will evaluate and reward the best submissions based on the following criteria:
- Find all 27 songs in the press release. We want artist, title and reference.
- Creativity and fun. We don't just want correct answers in pure text. Send us a blog post (on My Opera) with cover albums, tracklists to Spotify, Grooveshark or songs on YouTube you've identified. Anything goes - as long as it is a creative and fun submission.
How to submit
Use our contest form to send us your submission.
What to win
The winner can choose between a Samsung Nexus S smartphone or a Samsung Galaxy Tab. We will also throw in some cool Opera swag. Everything is perfect to use with Opera Mini 6 or Opera Mobile 11!

The Readers' Choice Awards 2011 hosted by About.com is still going on (voting ends March 8). Opera is a finalist in five categories, and we have a chance to win in at least four categories. Since voting started back in February, thousands of users have voted on their favorite software application. We're not trailing far behind to win in the "Best Major Desktop Browser" category. Only 3,000 votes are currently separating Chrome (which is leading at the moment) from Opera (we're in third).
If you haven't voted yet, and would like to see Opera win, feel free to toss us your vote (tell your friends too)! You can also vote for Opera using multiple devices, such as Opera Mini.

Last year, we completely dominated the About.com Readers' Choice Awards with a triple grand slam in the best desktop browser and best mobile browser categories. We could not have done this without your help, so our question to you is: Wanna do it again?
The 2011 Readers' Choice Awards kicked off last week, and this time we rise as finalists in four different categories. The most exciting thing one is the Best Browser theme category. Our very own community member Z1-AV69 is nominated as a finalist for his awesome Z-1 Glass theme! We know many of you have enjoyed his work, so it would totally rock if we helped him win, right?
