Opera Software Opera Mini 3.0 was released today (get it here). Major new features include camera support, RSS feed reader, SSL and https support, content folding, and speed improvements. Screenshot here. Today we also celebrate here at OSNews the first hits of the Opera-based Wii browser (via a proxy hack to allow generic web browsing) and the Sony PS3 browser. We would be grateful if you could snap a picture of your TV with your gaming console rendering OSNews and send us an email with it or post a link below.

Says it is supported on the Opera website. I dont understand...my 990i already has an Opera browser in it and it says version 8.6. And I have a separate app for my RSS feeds...I dont quite understand the point of this Opera Mini 3.0 when someone already has Opera 8.6. Can someone explain?

I don't know why you would run it on a P990i smartphone, but I currently have a Samsung MM-A900 dumbphone and Opera Mini is the only decent web browsing solution I have found for it.

Since it's a J2ME application, I can run it on the dumbphone without any problems, and it's almost as good as the Opera Mobile I had for my old Series 60 device.

I agree with you. I just thought I was missing something on this whole Opera mini vs the Opera 8.6 on my phone.
