Available as a beta since March, the Opera Mini 5.1 app for Android Mobile Operating System is now ready for download. Opera which is known for an extremely fast browsing experience, uses a proxy server to compress data before it is sent to your phone. Thats why it’s so fast.
Some new improvements to final version include faster page download speeds, accelerometer support, and virtual touchscreen support. One of biggest complaints of the beta was no multitouch support. Well Opera has fixed all that, the final version adds pinch-to-zoom multitouch support. So all you Nexus One owners can breeze easy now.
Another big addition is the ability to make Opera Mini the default browser, which is a nice feature not found on most other popular mobile platforms. Opera Mini 5.1 also adds a session restore to crashed browser session, and the ability to synchronizes bookmarks, speed dials, and search history with your Opera desktop browser. Lastly Opera has improved image quality and page rendering for all new large resolution devices like the EVO 4g and the new Droid X
