Quick Look: Opera Mini 7.1
Talking about development, we bumped onto a big name in the mobile industry and thought about how it still has a firm spot in the application business. Opera recently launched the Opera Mini 7.1 browser for Java And BlackBerry handsets and we thought of giving it a shot.
Like the earlier versions you get a fairly simple UI where you can save your favourite sites, get various tabs to various pages like Google, Twitter, Facebook, news, suggested links, and so on. You also get a nice download manager which not only manages the files that you download, but also has a pause feature in case your data connection decides to go in coma. The browser has its very own keyboard which is pretty swift, but if you want, you can set your default keyboard to type in the browser as well.
Pages load quickly even on an EDGE connection and the application responds pretty well and gives you smartphone like experience. The overall experience of the Java app is quite good and you don’t feel ancient at all.
