By on May 29th, 2010

Opera Another month, another State of the Mobile Web Report from Opera. Opera Mini continued its impressive showing, with a 1.6% increase in users from March to April. Opera Mini for iPhone, which was released in mid-April, managed to attract 2.6 million users. However, iPhone is only the third most popular device among Opera Mini users. The first and second positions are still occupied by Nokia’s 5130 XpressMusic and 6300 respectively.

The rush of iPhone users propelled USA to the sixth spot in the list of top 10 markets for Opera Mini. IPhone also overtook RIM’s Blackberry as the most popular handset among Opera Mini users in the US.

In April, Opera Mini generated 398 million megabytes of data for mobile operators worldwide. It’s a good thing that Opera Mini compresses traffic, as otherwise the amount of data consumed by the 58.9 million Opera Mini users would have been 3.7 petabytes.

Although, Opera’s growth has decelerated in the recent months, it is still the most popular mobile browser. Achieving 2.6 million unique users within a couple of weeks is no mean feat. But, the real challenge would be to hold on to them.
