Opera Mobile 10 Beta on the Omnia HD

So it was a huge surprise to see the beta version of Opera Mobile 10 be released for S60 phones. Opera Mobile 10 Beta, brings Opera's speed and standards support from Windows Mobile and UIQ to S60 phones, coupled with the new user interface innovations in Opera Mini 5 beta.
A welcome feature from the desktop version of Opera is the new opera:config editor. There's a variety of settings available, but the most welcome for Omnia HD users might be the minimum font size setting. The default minimum font size in Opera Mobile 10 Beta is 11, which is common on phones with smaller displays without touch. But on the Omnia HD's 640x360 screen, it's hard to read and links are even harder to hit with your thumbs. Setting the font size to 15 will make text more readable and links easier to touch. Here's how:
- Go to opera:config in the address bar
- Type in font in the search field
- Scroll to the bottom and look for "Minimum Font Size"
- Type in 15 in the text field
- Click "Save"
- Restart Opera Mobile
Once you start Opera Mobile again you'll notice that Opera Mobile has become a bit more Omnia HD friendly. Enjoy!
