Opera 9.7 Beta met Opera Turbo

Opera Mobile is voor het eerst verschenen in 2000, als de eerste mobiele browser die het echte web naar een klein scherm wist te krijgen. Sinds 2004 is het geinstalleerd op meer dan 120 miljoen telefoons. Nu is dan Opera 9.7 beta voor Windows Mobile toestellen een feit.

Voor een video en download locaties...


 9.7 beta known issues

Opera Turbo in Opera Mobile is still a preview-feature;
Downloads don’t work while Opera Turbo is enabled.
Some settings (such as toggle on/off images) do not apply when Opera Turbo is enabled.
On older WM 5.0 Devices with 480×800 resolution, switching between portrait and landscape may cause display errors. This is due to lack of support for this resolution in early versions of Microsoft’s driver.
Some input method editors are known not to work well with Opera because they do not comply with Microsoft’s SIP and/or IME standard. When such an editor is detected by Opera, Opera will use a known (default) input method instead. An exception is EzInput v1.5, where the phone keypad and compact QUERTY, ABC mode doesn’t work, but the rest of the modes work fine. We recommend upgrading to EzInput v2.0 to avoid this.
Only support for FlashLite 3.x. No Flash plugin included.

Widget manager add-on

The Widget manager is an add-on to the browser, so the browser must be installed in order for the widget manager to work.
We recommend disabling Opera Turbo in the browser when using the widget manager.
Rotating widgets does not work properly. Portrait mode should be used when running widgets.
Widgets + Plugins (Flash & Gears) don’t work.
Clicking internal links in a widget will launch the browser.
Twitter widget might have login problems on first run. If this happens, just close the Twitter widget (X) and open it again.
