Seems that Opera Mini has been submitted to the App Store. Now to see if/when it shows up on the other side. Google voice is in a perpetual state of not-rejected-not-accepted, while other app updates have been coming through in 24-48 hours. Guess we'll see if Opera Mini violates the "no duplication of iphone app functionality" clause. Assuming we need another browser on the iPhone that is. Not that Mobile Safari is the be-all and end-all, but do we need 2 (or 4, or 100) mobile browsers for the iPhone?
That said, looking at the video on the page, the UI is pretty nice, and if you don't mind sending all your data through the Opera caching servers, the speed does look dramatically better. Ok, I'm sold, gimme Opera Mini!!
You can keep up with how long it's been with the Countup page.
