Smoother downloading with Opera Mini for J2ME and BlackBerry

Oslo, Norway - November 20, 2012

Today, the internet became just a tad easier for the millions of people using basic phones to browse the web. Downloading handling on basic phones has been a cumbersome task, but with Opera Mini 7.1 for J2ME and BlackBerry, this is now easier - and faster - than ever.

Opera Mini for J2ME and BlackBerry

The Opera Mini 7.1 browser features a new, revamped download manager that lets the user easily handle downloaded media such as documents, multimedia and other content. Many mobile users know that internet connections can be fickle at times. Sometimes it may feel like the universe is trying tell you something when the 10 MB presentation from your boss stops downloading at 9.99 MB after your train enters a tunnel, and lose the mobile signal for a few seconds.

With the Opera Mini 7.1 browser, downloading of a file can be paused when the connection disappears, and then resumed when you're back on track.

The new Opera Mini 7.1 lets you access the file even more easily than before. On the BlackBerry platform, the file can be accessed directly from the browser; while, on J2ME the user can choose to let the phone open the file directly in e.g. a media player or to save it for later use.

Opera Mini works on more than 3,000 different phone models, in all price categories. Thanks to its compression technology, Opera Mini can save you time and data cost, by up to 90%. Opera Mini can be downloaded from m.opera.com.
