Out of all of the new releases, I am most excited about this one. The integration of social bookmarking, javascript/AJAX and tabbed browsing is a dream come true! :)

Based on reports from other users, Smartphone support is a little on the weak side. :( Dabble with caution.

I would also like to know if some brave soul has installed this app.

From what I can understand from this thread (look for post by user named "Great Day"), it seems there are definitely some issues:

I tried it on my Moto Q. It's a bit weak for Smartphone. It was slow and hard to navigate--it uses the soft keys to move from the tabs, to the browser window, then to the options at the bottom. The highlighting around the selected item is very hard to see. The tabs display needs to be optional. On landscape screens they take up entirely too much veritical space.
At this point, Opera 8.65 beta is a much better choice for standalone browsing on the Smaprtphone.

With that said, I've been using Opera Mini for the sheer speed of it. The Java environent can be a bit klunky, but OM 3.1 Basic version has been working quite well for me.
