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.

Well, I suspect one of two things will happen:
1. Apple will allow Opera, primarily for public relations points. I'm sure Apple are aware of how they are perceived in the tech media, and allowing Opera would shut a lot of people up for the time being.
2. Apple will keep it under eternal review without actually rejecting it. This is, if you believe Apple anyway, what has happened to the Google Voice app though Google has a different story to tell.
I'll be surprised if Apple officially rejects it. This is a perfect opportunity to score some huge PR, and Apple doesn't usually let these slide.
