    Opera just announced that their popular Mini mobile browser is now finally available for the iPhone and iPod Touch.

    Opera has been tearing up the mobile browsing market, with more than 50 million users at present, and millions more now sure to come.

    Lars Boilesen, CEO of Opera  Software is quoted as saying “”We are delighted to offer iPhone and iPod touch users a great browsing experience with the Opera Mini App”.

    More info, screenshots and a video after the jump.

    For those of you pinching pennies, or on a data package that isn’t unlimited, you’ll be pleased to know that Opera uses compression methods that allow you to view a full website, yet download noticeably less data.  This also serves as great information for those unlucky enough to be stuck on AT&T’s Edge connection, which is notoriously slow with large data transmissions.

    So get to the App Store, grab the free Opera Mini (it will be available in the next 24 hours) and let us know what you think of it.  We expect to see some great comments about this!

    What’s that?  You want a video demo?  Why sure!
