After releasing an improved version for the Android devices, Opera have released the improved Opera Mini 5.1 for Windows Mobile. The web browser, which is already available on Java, BlackBerry OS and Android OS-based smartphones, is designed to allow Windows Mobile users to load web pages much faster, thereby helping them to shed data costs.

Opera Mini’s server backbone speeds up browsing while reducing the data transferred to the phone. The developers claim that Opera Mini can cut your mobile data bill by up to 90 percent!! It has number of new features and number of improvements including:
- The ability to set Opera Mini as the default browser

Mr. Jon von Tetzchner, Co-founder, Opera Software said that “The new Opera Mini is particularly vibrant and really takes advantage of high resolution screens. And, now that you can set Opera Mini as your default browser on a Windows Mobile phone, it is much easier to enjoy the speed boost and data compression. It is our way of making your Windows Mobile phone better.”
