WEB BROWSER OUTFIT Opera has announced the latest versions of its mobile web browsers, Opera Mini 6 and Opera Mobile 11.

The Opera Mini 6 browser works on devices using the Android, Blackberry. Symbian/Series 60 and J2ME operating systems. Opera Mobile 11 works on Android, Symbian, Windows 7 and Meego. Android is obviously the top priority for Opera, with users able to choose between the two mobile browsers.

Currently neither Opera browser will work on Apple's devices, but Opera is planning to show a preview of Opera Mini on the Iphone and Ipad, suggesting that an Opera web browser release for IOS is imminent.

Opera's web browser hasn't been doing well on desktop and laptop PCs, particularly with stiff competition from Microsoft, Google and Mozilla. However, its mobile offering has been gaining strong support, with the company having around 100 million mobile users.

Opera will be showcasing its updated mobile web browsers in action at the CTIA Wireless event in Florida next week. They should be available for download then. µ
