While the Opera Software spokesman told me on the Mobile World Congress back in February, that Opera Mobile 9.5 for Windows Mobile should be publically available in summer, it took a little bit longer. Nevertheless, the wait is almost over as Opera announced today on its Opera Mobile blog. According to the posting, a release testing phase is underway now and the target date for the first Beta is July 15th; from where you will be able to download Opera Mobile 9.5 for Windows Mobile from - just like you would any other versions of Opera. As Opera unveiled on the Mobile World Congress already, Opera Mobile 9.5 is based on the same browser engine as Opera 9.5 for desktop, and this is the reason why it has taken some time to get it ready.

However, the new version of the browser engine will ensure that you can surf the Web with a browser supporting the latest and greatest in Web standards.

Some versions of Opera Mobile 9.5 are already shipping on the latest Windows Mobile smartphones like the HTC Touch Diamond, HTC X7510 and Samsung SGH-i900 Omnia and without going into details yet, Opera said that we can expect a few differences between the versions that are pre-installed on phones and the public version of Opera Mobile 9.5.
It's yet not known if Opera is releasing the Windows Mobile Professional version only or if a Windows Mobile Standard version is in the pipe as well.

Cheers ~ Arne

Who cares.  There is no mention of Symbian.
