Opera for Iphone?

Published: 2008-01-11 14:01:06

According to an article in Swedish MacWorld, Opera is porting its web browser to the Iphone. Sure, the Iphone is hyped, but I still cannot understand why people want one. Why chose vendor lock-in with less features when you can get a proper phone for less money? Sure, it looks kind of nice, but there are other phones that look even better.

The thing is reportedly very easy to use. It is one thing to offer a nice looking touch screen interface, and another thing to make it work flawlessly. Reminds me of the almost perfect interface on the SE P900 - I still have it, and I dread to move to a newer SE Symbian phone because everyone tells me they've screwed the interface.

Why not to make some money on i-addicted? (-:E
Hope it'd worth the costs for Opera Software.

As for iPhone... I'd prefer Greenphone or, even better, Neo1973. "Openness" is too valuable in our days (-:E

iPhone is quite open - when you say goodbye to AT&T, which is about a US$20 deal (when you know guys with sim-programmers and such :-)

There's already tons of native (not web) software for iPhone, and I will be pleased to see Opera among those on my iPhone, since Safari is very, very unpowerful.
