A few months ago, when I met my old supervisor, a professor at University, she wanted me to have any kinds of such a tool, to confirm where she had to go, to meet me in a crowded city of Tokyo, so I finally decided to get a handy phone.
Usual handy phone are not my favour, their audio are so bad, bad enough to throw them away. So I selected WILLCOM's phone. Some of WILLCOM's phone have Opera Mobile with it. But recent news about Opera Mini 3.0 drives me to get Java installed one. Then I bought one made by Sanyo, WX310SA. It has Java with it.
Then I went to mini.opera.com to get the recent files of Opera Mini 3.0. The install was succeeded with ease. But Opera Mini couldn't connect to the web!
I Googled a few pages to seek a solution, then I found WX310SA doesn't admit Java applications to communicate to the web! What a fool thing it is! 310SA's default browser is Netfront, another pity fact for an Opera user!
There is an another Java based browser for this Sanyo, working like an Opera Mini, a jig browser. That Japanese Java browser can communicate to the web, through a phone's default ISP. One more pity thing it is, and I can't understand the reason why they don't admit Opera Mini to connect to the web.
The page of mini.opera.com offers the exact Opera Mini's files for WX310SA, which is useless, unless you have another ISP besides phone's default ISP. The get another ISP, you have to pay extra money for that. Quite a nonsense indeed, for that extra contract is needed only for Opera Mini users. Netfront or optional jig browser users can use default ISP, offered by WILLCOM.
A jig browser is not free, not free as beer. And I can't compare Netfront with Opera, that's an easy answer for a long time Opera user.
I use CATV as my ISP, so they don't offer mobile ISP. Then I have to look for another, cheap one, if it's possible, to use Opera Mini. So for a while, I don't use Mini. I use my new phone, just as an audio communicator and an e-mail terminal.
