I tested out the previous tech preview editions of Opera for Windows Mobile Smartphones and have been following its development. I very pleased to get the note from them this morning that the Opera 8 web browser for WM Smartphones has been released as a full version download. I just downloaded it and plan on installing it soon. I was also pleased to hear that they are working on a version for WM Pocket PC devices. In my comparison testing with Pocket Internet Explorer, Opera beat the page download times in almost every case. I love using Opera on my Nokia 7610 Series 60 device and Sharp Zaurus and will be reviewing the version for Smartphones soon.
