Opera Software Think of Opera what you want, but those Norwegian guys and girls know how to get publicity. The company has announced it has submitted Opera Mini to the iPhone's App Store, and it has launched a website with a count-up timer, following how long it will take Apple to approve it - if at all, of course.

I think there's only an exteremely simple image and text layout engine on the client.

1. mini runs (as java midlet) on quite simple phones (like SE K750i) that struggle to handle html native way
2. Reorientation to landscape mode causes a roundtrip.

Basically, technologically mini is WAP done right.
