Opera Software today released the much-anticipated, first public version of Opera Mobile 9.5 Beta. A powerful foreshadowing of what is to come, this Beta takes mobile browsing speed and features to a new level, complete with visual effects and a new look. Opera has changed the face of its mobile browser in this Beta release. As with the latest version of Opera Mini, Opera Mobile 9.5 Beta now defaults to page overview mode, allowing the user to view the entire Web page and instantly recognize the Web site. With panning and zooming options, the user is able to focus on specific page content. Opera also introduces a sleek, new user interface for easier navigation.

"Our fans have been eager for the release of Opera Mobile 9.5 since it first appeared at the Mobile World Congress this year," says Jon von Tetzchner, CEO, Opera Software. "We are now answering the call of the people and delivering what we proudly proclaim to be our best Opera Mobile browser to date. It is a totally new user experience."

New Opera Mobile 9.5 Beta features:

  • Pan and Zoom: Using the same technology found in Opera Mini, Opera Mobile 9.5 defaults to full web page viewing and allows users to pan and zoom into their desired content in just a few clicks.
  • Save Pages and/or Images: With a click, simply save your selected content and send via E-Mail, SMS or MMS to friends.
  • Improved User interface: Opera has completely renovated its mobile UI. Cleaner and more intuitive, the new UI is designed for quick and easy navigation.
  • Improved Standards Support: Opera remains steadfast in its commitment to make the web accessible for all. Opera Mobile 9.5 is the most standards-compliant mobile browser available. It is based on Opera's latest core rendering engine, Presto 2.1.
  • Faster: Opera has always been among the fastest browsers available and Opera Mobile 9.5 Beta continues this fine tradition with noticeable speed improvements over Opera Mobile 8.65 and Internet Explorer Mobile.

With developer needs at the heart of this first Beta release, Opera Mobile 9.5 includes several features to enable easier development on the mobile platform.
Opera Dragonfly, Opera's developer tools, officially goes cross-platform with this release. It allows developers to debug JavaScript, inspect Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) and the Document Object Model (DOM), and view any errors, making development for the mobile phone even easier.

Opera Mobile 9.5 Beta 1 is now available for Windows Mobile Professional smartphones. A Windows Mobile Standard version for non-touchscreen smartphones is expected to be released later this year.

Cheers ~ Arne

Unfortunately they are a bit too late in the game. Try it out for yourself, use Opera and then Netfront 3.5, and then tell me which one you like more...
