Opera Mini 4.2 for Android now ready

January 28, 2009

    operamini_logoOur friend Eric Zeman over at PhoneScoop.com received an email from Opera last night with a list of Android related bug fixes addressed in the 4.2 version of Opera Mini.  The fixes should make the browser much more viable for Android users, though I have to admit that I have yet to try it out myself.

    According to Opera, the major fixes include:

    • Access to the SD card for uploading and downloading, and for saving pages
    • Video playback hand-off, when needed, to the OS
    • Double tap zoom and unzoom
    • Built-in URL input box
    • Corrected password entry handling
    • Fixed problems with back function and when closing the app
    • Improved trackball speed
    • Using an extra large font for built-in pages

    Test it out and let us know how it works in the comments section.
