Opera Mini for iPhone





In an interview to NY Times Mr. von Tetzchner said that Opera’s engineers have developed a version of Opera Mini that can run on an Apple iPhone, but Apple won’t let the company release it because it competes with Apple’s own Safari browser.

We hope that some day Opera will be avaliable as iPhone unofficail software via Cydia Installer.
