Opera Mobile 10.1 Arrives on Symbian
By on November 24th, 2010

Barely a day after Opera 11 Beta was released, Opera Software has launched Opera Mobile 10.1 final for Symbian (Symbian^3, and Symbian S60 3rd and 5th editions). “Powerful smartphones deserve an equally powerful browser,” said Lars Boilesen, CEO, Opera Software. “Opera Mobile 10.1 today brings the best mobile browsing experience to the world’s most popular smartphone platform.”

Opera 10.1 for Symbian features JIT (just-in-time) compilation for Carakan JavaScript Engine, which is not yet available on Opera Mobile for Android. JIT should significantly boost Opera’s JavaScript rendering speed. In fact, Opera is claiming that the latest build is nine times faster than its predecessor on SunSpider benchmark. Like its desktop counterpart, Opera Mobile uses Presto rendering engine and Vega graphics library to offer a powerful web-browsing experience.

Also new in Opera 10.1 is Geolocation, which enables web applications like Maps to directly grab your current location (obviously, with your permission).

Opera Mobile 10.1 retains all the usual goodies we have come to love from Opera, including powerful tabbed browsing, search bar, history, visual speed dial, find in page, bookmarks, online sync, password manager and Opera Turbo. You can download it from opera.com/mobile or by browsing to m.opera.com from your mobile browser.
