Opera updates mobile browsers

In a recent article for .net, mobile expert Peter-Paul Koch blasted designers and developers for arguing WebKit has a mobile monopoly and suggested everyone download Opera Mini to their iPhones and Android devices, not least due to its marketshare overtaking Safari's in December. With a great sense of timing (well, from our point of view), Opera has recently made a number of announcements related to mobile-browsing.

New versions of both Opera Mobile and Opera Mini have been released. Version 12 of the former, available for Android and Symbian, boasts improvements regarding support for HTML5, ECMAScript and CSS, and Android users also get hardware-accelerated WebGL and support for camera use in the browser. Opera adds that the Opera Mobile Emulator is available for download to assist with testing, and version 12 will be released soon. And over on iOS, Opera Mini 7 has been released.
