Default No Opera Mini Support so far?

Please Login to Remove!

I like having a secondary choice as a browser, and even though the new webkit browser is fantastic, I still enjoy some features of Opera mini.

Has anyone had success installing it on a OS 6 device?

And for those of us who don't have OS6 yet (aka 9650 users), has Opera been fixed so it works with a touch pad?

Worked awesome with my 9700. Absolutely no issues.

No the app is not usable on the 9650. I am not a big Bolt Browser, so the BB Browser is the sole choice

Strange, it would not let me download it from m.opera.com but once I selected version and language deeper in the mobile site it downloaded and installed fine. Could of been just a glitch with Opera's site.

There seems to be compatibility issues with the Bold 9650

That's putting it mildly, lol. I got so frustrated trying to get the cursor to hold over the "close" button that I pulled the battery just to escape. For whatever reason, it does NOT like the trackpad on the 9650 - cursor jumps around like a lab puppy chasing a butterfly.

It seems that with Opera Mini on the Torch, you need to keep your finger on the trackpad and not hover over so fast. Like selecting the middle item of a 3-item list, you almost have to do a reverse scrolling on the trackpad to actually select the middle item. At least it was my situation when trying to select 'Clear All' in the History tab.

I have Opera Mini installed on my Torch and works fine, the only thing i found that doesn't work is pinch to zoom, I have to tap the screen to zoom in or out. I can scroll up and down a page by swiping the screen, select links by touching the screen. I don't need to use the trackpad at all.
