Default Opera Mobile 10 Beta

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://www.opera.com/press/releases/2009/11/18/' target='_blank'>http://www.opera.com/press/releases/2009/11/18/</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"The Opera Mobile 10 beta for Windows Mobile looks and feels similar to the Opera 10 desktop browser and Opera Mini 5 beta. Opera is creating more cohesion between its products by introducing a unified look across many of its platforms. Opera maintains its powerful arsenal of features in this beta, including Speed Dial, tabbed browsing, a password manager and its super, server-side compressor, Opera Turbo."</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com//wpt/auto/1258599831.usr14226.png" style="border: 1px solid #d2d2bb;" /></p><p>Opera Mobile has for some time now been the best alternative (outside North America at least) to IE Mobile - now they've gone and upped the stakes with Mobile 10 beta. Just about any feature you're used to on Opera's desktop browser has been translated for the small screen, including tabbed browsing and Opera turbo (server side compression). Best of all is the price tag - free during the "beta" period. I can't find any info on feature or date limitations, or how long "beta" testing will last, but this one's getting loaded on my phone in a hurry.

I tried this on my Samsung Jack. But I couldn't get past the EULA screen. The Accept button was inactive.

As with version 9.x, this version does not support WM Standard. Yet, or perhaps ever.

I am running Opera Mobile 9.5 so far which came factory installed on my HTC HD. I could use flashlite 3.1 as well open my banking site which requires Java Script.

On the beta 10 neither can I run flash enabled sites nor can I open my banking site. So while the interface might be better but overall the Beta 10 is a less useful browser than the older version9.5

Just my opinion

Regards

Opera 10 works fine on my PPC but why would they make the Opera display completely cover the Today screen? I can't get to the menu without closing Opera first.

My only solution is to make the iTask button display the Today screen when pressed. Work arounds are fine but I don't follow the Opera logic to begin with, it wasn't this way on the previous beta's.
