google-androidNEW YORK (GaeaTimes.com) — Opera has kept its Up North Web conference promise by unveiling Opera mobile for the android smart phone. Norway’s Opera Software has declared on Tuesday that Opera Mobile browser will be available for Google’s Android platform from now onwards.

This is not the first time that Android phone users will feel the presence of Opera on their mobile. Previously, Opera was there in the form of Opera Mini.

Opera Mini is a Java-based proxy browser that fetches web pages from the Opera’s server. In contrast, Opera Mobile is a standalone HTML browser that can request, render, and display Web content independently of Opera’s servers.

Opera said, the new browser offers faster page loading than its rivals. With its data compression technique it will be able to provide better connections even at a lower-speed or congested network.

The new version of Opera Mobile includes old features as well as some enticing new features. For example, in addition to Opera Turbo and Opera Link features of the older version, a completely new feature pinch-to-zoom is there.

With Pinch-to-zoom feature user can zoom perfectly without compromising with the speed or data compression while using Opera Turbo.
