Opera Software This is actually pretty big news - both exciting and tragic at the same time. Opera has revealed Opera Ice, its next mobile browser, to PocketLint. This new browser represent a big shift in both user interface as well as rendering engine, since it has a new, unique interface, as well as a new rendering engine... New to Opera, that is, as it's a WebKit-browser.

everything except Android and iOS are basically irrelevant at this point, so who cares about portable?

That's probably not really true yet. Things might appear so if you're in one of the most visible, affluent markets.

However, since we're on the topic of Opera, and when talking not about sales but what people actually use...

http://gs.statcounter.com/#mobile_vendor-ww-monthly-201003-201301 - still plenty of browsing from Nokia devices, none of them "Android and iOS", Opera capable of running on most of them ( http://gs.statcounter.com/#mobile_os-ww-monthly-201003-201301 & http://www.opera.com/smw/2011/11/ - mostly S40 "feature phones")

Mobile vendors? This is about browsing the web on your phone. Did you look at the stats lately (flawed as they are)?

Opera Mini can run on all those Java devices. But for full browsers there's basically just two targets.
