Opera available for Android phones

The new Google gadged may have not hit the market yet, but when it does it will already benefit from the availability of some third-party application.

Opera announced Thursday it had ported a version of its browser to Android.

People interested on trying it can download the technical preview from the company’s website; Opera only ask them to submit feedback before the company officially release the beta for the software.

Opera’s CEO Jon von Tetzchner stated: “today we’re glad to deliver our mass-market mobile browser to the Android development groups”. Opera’s Chris Mills said: “When we first heard about Google Android, we were very excited about the possibilities it presents,”.

Since the software is still in development, there are obviously some remaining issues, like the back button that isn’t completely functional and what Mills define as “painting issues.”

Opera Mini for Android can be downloaded from this link; it requires a copy of the Android SDK.
