Opera 2.0 Mini Released

Opera Software today released Opera Mini 2.0, a new version of its Web browser that runs on almost every mobile phone. Among other improvements, this new version allows users to download MP3s, images, and other Web content directly to their mobile phone.

Because it uses Java, Opera Mini can run on a wide variety of phones. This includes Palm OS Treos, and some people have embraced it as an alternative to Blazer, the default Web browser that comes with these smartphones.

This free application can be downloaded from the Opera web site for no charge.
