Opera Software Earlier, we reported that Apple had rejected Opera Mini from the App Store. A New York Times blog entry claimed that Opera's CEO and co-founder Jon Stephenson von Tetzchner said that Apple wouldn't let them release Opera Mini for the iPhone because it competed with Mobile Safari. John Gruber, of Daring Fireball, did some researching of his own, and found out via anonymous sources who do not wish to be identified, that the situation is a little bit different.

Where does the java idea come in. I mean they could very well have taken their Opera Mobile code and ported it to the iPhone, since native C++ will run on the iPhone. This Gruber guy is just accusing the NYTimes of faking an interview with Opera CEO, wtf??? I mean, if i were to develop an app for the iPhone, i woudln't even consider Java, i don't see why the Opera team would either. A port of Opera mobile won't be hard, and with my iPhone programming experience so far, it wouldn't surprise me if the full pc Opera version could be ported, it sure has the power!
