Today Opera Mobile 12 was launched for Android and S60 devices. Download the latest build from the Android Market, Ovi Store, or directly from Opera at m.opera.com.
Opera Mobile 12 will bring more goodies to owners of Android and Symbian smartphones. In the goodie bag for Opera Mobile 12, you’ll find:
- WebGL on Android phones, for all things 3D and web. With WebGL on mobile, it’ll be even easier to make games cross platform and to distribute them. “Opera have contributed significantly to the development of the WebGL specification and now Opera Mobile is playing a leading role in the roll-out of GPU-accelerated WebGL on Android,” said Neil Trevett, Khronos president and vice president of mobile content at NVIDIA.
- Ragnarök, Opera's HTML5 parser support, meaning better web apps and increased compatibility with websites. More HTML5 means more advanced web functionality.
- Support for camera use in the browser.
- More possibilities for customizing the Speed Dial of Opera Mobile, including entering as many Speed Dial entries as you like.
