One of the most popular mobile browsers on the planet, Opera, has been updated to better support new versions of the Symbian OS. With versions of Symbian Belle leaked to the public, users were finding that Opera Mobile and Opera Mini would not launch. This issue has been fixed by Opera and you can now use Symbian Belle with a hacked Nokia N8 or the Nokia 700, 701, and 600.
Symbian Anna is the current firmware version for Symbian^3 devices such as the Nokia N8, E7, E6, and C7. Opera updated their browsers to work with the new keyboard introduced in Anna, including the split-screen feature allowing you to see the website above the keyboard.
According to WAP Review,
“Opera Software came up with a fix today with two new releases; Opera Mobile 11.1 Update 2 for S60 andOpera Mini 6.1 Update 2 for S60. The new versions fix the startup issue on Belle and also offer improved integration with the half-screen keyboard on phones running Symbian Anna. They can also be installed on devices running earlier Symbian versions.”
I’d like to mention something. I’ve been using the new browser in Symbian Belle on my Nokia N8 for about a month now and it’s spectacular. I haven’t had the urge to install Opera Mobile on my device, not one bit. But it’s nice to know that now I can if needed.
