Opera Mini for the iPhone [news.yahoo.com]
Norwegian browser company Opera Software said it would launch a version of its Mini browser for Apple's iPhone next week, offering faster download speeds.

Opera said the browser would offer consumers up to six times faster download speeds than Apple's own, and cut data traffic by up to 90 percent. Massive data traffic from iPhone mobile phones has caused problems for many operators networks.


"This is a provocative move by Opera which will result in a tricky and high profile PR exercise for Apple should it decide not to allow Opera mini through the App Store," CCS Insight analyst Geoff Blaber said.

Opera is wisely gathering good PR about the fact that Apple needs to approve this (provided the main stipulations are met, just as everyone else deals with). It'll be interesting to see how this pans out.

Hopefully Apple doesn't pull some lame "denied due to duplicate functionality" excuse, just because they already offer Safari.
