We are excited to release Opera Mobile 10.1 beta for Android. Our outstanding Android developers in Czech Republic, Sweden, Norway, Poland, and China have been working overtime to bring you this release. Opera signature features like Speed Dials, Visual Tabs, Password Manager, Link, Turbo and many others are now available to Android users. Not to forget the legendary speed of the Opera Presto rendering engine.
Search for "Opera Mobile" in the Android Market, or download direct to your PC.
Read more on our web site. And if you are a developer, there is even more at dev.opera.com.
Share your feedback in our forums. We are looking forward to hearing from you!
And know that there is more in the pipeline. This is a first release and we prioritized having a stable base to start with. Over the next months we will add support for HTML5 Video and Flash, as well as upgrading to the latest Opera Presto core and thereby enabling standards like Application Cache and Web Storage. And we will focus on platform optimizations like Hardware Acceleration and JIT compilation which will further improve both performance and usability.

Opera Mobile vs Mobile Mini
As many of you know we also have Opera Mini available for Android OS. For more information about the difference between the two products, see this blog post and the specs on the product pages. Some of you will prefer one over the other. Others, like me, will want to have both. Both are free and available today for your Android OS phone so we encourage you to try them both for yourself.
