Opera Mini 5.1 compresses data by up to 90 percent

Recently Opera Team has released Opera 5.1, an update to Opera Mini 5. Opera Mini 5.1 improves the Browsing Experience on phones with limited memory.

The update includes a new optimized browser skin allowing for more pages to be open at the same time, more rapid scrolling through pages, and overall improved browsing performance.


This update is highly recommended for users of Nokia S40 feature phones with limited memory, such as the popular Nokia 5130 XpressMusic, Nokia 6300 and Nokia 2700 handsets. This upgrade will also benefit phones with a small screen size, such as the Sony Ericsson K550i and Sony Ericsson W810i phones.

Opera Mini compresses data by up to 90 percent before sending content to the phone, resulting in faster page loading and speed. This compression dramatically reduces data load, which translates to lower browsing costs when on a pay-per-MB data plan, especially when roaming.

Go to m.opera.com with your phone’s default browser and Opera will automatically select the optimized version for your phone.
