Opera Mini 5 Beta 2 is now available for download. It is working just fine for me on my BlackBerry Storm 9530, however, we are hearing reports that there are issues with Beta 2 on non-touchscreen devices. If you decide to try it out and you aren’t using a Storm or Storm2, let us know how you fair.
Since it is working for me, I will just say that it is mind boggling that a third party web browser can be so much better in so many ways than the native BlackBerry Browser. RIM’s WebKit based browser currently under development can’t get here soon enough and if it isn’t, at the very least, on par with what you get in Android, Palm’s Web OS, or, dare I even say, Mobile Safari on the iPhone, it will be a very, very, long year for RIM.
