The biggest improvement is the support for high resolution devices (higher DPI), and improved page layout and font rendering. Unlike other browsers, Opera Mini, which was initially meant only for low-end handsets, doesn’t locally render the webpages. Instead it routes the requested pages through its own servers that renders the pages, compresses them and sends them back as static content. While this approach creates problems with interactive websites using AJAX and other modern technologies, it can drastically reduce data charges and even speed up web browsing on slower networks.

Other new features include support for auto-rotation, advanced configuration support for advanced users and the ability to become the default system browser. Opera Mini 5.1 contains several key improvements for the millions of people with a Windows Mobile phone,informed Jon von Tetzchner, the Co-founder of Opera Software. The new Opera Mini is particularly vibrant and really takes advantage of high resolution screens. And, now that you can set Opera Mini as your default browser on a Windows Mobile phone, it is much easier to enjoy the speed boost and data compression. It is our way of making your Windows Mobile phone better.

To download Opera Mini 5.1 simply browse to m.opera.com on your mobile phone.
