“Opera is whispering about a “silent” upgrade to their popular Opera Mini browser that’s specific to Palm and BlackBerry devices only. Version 4.1.11355 is available at and addresses these issues:

  • BlackBerry devices can use WiFi only. [I’m assuming Opera Mini was using cellular data services and folks didn’t want that? ]

  • Memory is handled better on Palm devices, which should boost image performance.
