Today we have a new update of Opera Mini 4 for you! The main focus of this release has been to bring the network features in Opera Mini 4 up to the same level as in Opera Mini 6.5. This opens up new possibilities for your network operator to integrate services like free Opera Mini browsing to certain sites, and hopefully it makes it easier for you to connect. There are no major user visible features in this release, but we have chosen to call it 4.4 since there are significant changes to the network code. Apart from that we have fixed skin issues for some Samsung devices.
Opera Mini 4.4 is mainly for low-end devices that are not capable of running Opera Mini 6.5. The download system will suggest the best version for your device. Just visit http://m.opera.com/ on your phone and you will get the version best suited for your device. Or you can visit http://www.opera.com/mobile/download/pc/ on your PC.
As always, we welcome your feedback in our forum, and please report any bugs in our bug report wizard. Thanks!

Opera Mini 6.5 will now show you exactly how much data you have spent and saved using the two products and, in turn, the money and time you save.
A dedicated page, easily accessible from the help menu inside the Opera Mini and Opera Mobile browsers, keeps count of how much data you are spending and saving in total, or for a specific timeframe like a trip abroad with roaming.
The number of megabytes saved while using the Opera Mini browser can directly translate into money saved if you are roaming or on a pay-as-you-go plan for data traffic.
For people on capped data plans, this is a handy feature to make sure you don't max out reaching those slow, punishing network speeds you might encounter after using up your allowance.
