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.

... this duplicates core browser functionality. I hope it gets approved but realistically, it probably won't.

Well Opera is publicity whore company so no suprise really.

All companies are publicity whores. Why is it only bad if Opera does it?

Doing this after Google just makes them look like Vanilla Ice, you might thinking you are original but you ain't.

Doing what after Google?

All Opera is doing is to try to get their product onto the iPhone, and get lots of PR in the process. Is that supposed to be a bad thing?

Duplicates, but also provides additional functionality ("mini" being the whole point of the browser), same as does Spotify, and countless other apps which got approved.

My guts says Apple will pose no problems and just approve it.
