Mini 7 - How is text input handled?I often prefer to type in URLs in the address field manually. Luckily, version 5.1 of Opera Mini has a very simple and straight forward approach at typing in letters. Version 6 of Opera Mini on the other hand, messed up things by using the built-in text input mechanisms of my Nokia E52. T9? No thanks, non-English letters don't go well with URLs... Not using T9, I must press the "1" -key 15 (!) - I'll say that again, FIFTEEN TIMES to get the forward slash symbol (/) and that is NOT considered a progress in my book (as opposed to pressing "1" two times in v5.1 to get the "/"). Disabling the T9 in Opera Mini 6 is a system-wide setting which is not OK as I'm using it writing text messages or email. Luckily the installation of the 6.5 version did not ruin the installed Mini 5.1, they ran side by side so I removed Opera Mini 6.5 from my phone.
1. How is text input working in Opera Mini v7?
2. Now I'm tempted at trying the version 7 of Opera Mini but I'm afraid it will ruin the 5.1 installation. I do not have the the installation package for Mini v5.1. Can I still run version 5.1 and 7.0 side-by side on my Nokia E52? (In case I don't find opera v7 worth while).
My main concern is the use of T9 in Mini 6 (and 7?), my non-English localization does not go well with URLs and most other sites I use where I input text.
I would prefer if the chosen method of text input in Mini was independent of the settings on my phone. That way I could keep T9 for the native mail and SMS apps and simple text input in Opera Mini. Is that possible in Mini v7?

Install mini v5.1 on sd card, enter in phone system and copy/move .jad and .jar files (or .sis) in other folder ready for reinstallation, works even on a dumb phone. No sweat with mini7 testing yourself what the latest mini app may offer.
and within every dewdrop
a world of struggle.
