Opera Mini 4.2 beta for BlackBerry now available

18 Comments

Opera has released a new version of their popular (read: free!) web browser for BlackBerry. Opera Mini 4.2 features new skins, performance tweaks, increased video capability and notes syncing. Here’s what the folks at Opera had to say about the increase in performance:

Opera Mini 4.2 can use our newly established server park in the US. This means significantly faster page downloads for our users in the Americas and Asia-Pacific region. Users in the rest of the world will also experience faster page downloads since we’ve reduced the load on our other servers.

Head to mini.opera.com/beta with your BlackBerry browser for an OTA install of Opera Mini 4.2 or Opera’s website for a desktop download.
