Opera Mini for Android beta: New version to run on Android 2.3 and higher
During the past months, we’ve given a lighter look and feel to our mobile browsers. In the same spirit, we have now made a new version of Opera Mini for Android to look and feel just as great.
You can get Opera Mini for Android beta from Google Play Store.
This beta version marks the start of a transition for Opera Mini for Android. Using Opera for Android as a starting point, we created a lightweight browser that runs on Android 2.3 and higher. We need your feedback on what works and what can be improved. We want to make sure that you are pleased with our product.

With this beta version, you can of course get up to 90% data savings, saving you time and money while getting around the web faster.
We also added the option to browse privately with private tabs, letting you go anywhere on the internet without leaving a trace on your device.
Here’s what else you can expect after you download Opera Mini for Android beta:

Choose between three different styles for your browser. Go to settings, select App layout and choose between: Phone, which maximizes the viewing area; Classic, which makes for easier one-handed navigation; or Tablet, which makes it easier to switch between tabs.
