Software : Opera Mini

URL : http://www.operamini.com

Platform : PALM OS


Absolute Rubbish !

Opera Mini happens to be my favourite software across all mobile applications. So when i found out they finally had the PALM version i was excited. The earlier MIDP 2 version always used to crash in the IBM virtual java thingy of my Palm Treo 650.

I logged onto operamini.com using my phone, Opera didnt recogonise my phone as a phone and displayed the HTML page instead. I clicked on download, and selected my phone. I downloaded the ‘free’ .prc version of Opera Mini. It got downloaded fairly quickly and got installed. I open it and it asked for random strings just like it always does to secure my connection.

Then i entered a URL and kept the phone on my desk, one minute later i found Opera Mini had crashed. I tried again , only this time i watched the crashing in action, it tried to open the license agreement and crashed again.

I uninstalled opera mini, blazer is fine for me !

My Verdict – Opera Mini is uncompatible with Palm Treo 650, no matter what they claim.

We might just turn this site into a full time Symbian and PALM OS Application Reviewer, my new Nokia N Series phone becomes my guinea pig as i try out new symbian software and tell you its features, post screenshots, and basically if its worth it. But busy in exams these days, but expect some Symbian and PALM OS application reviews real soon.
