Opera for Tablets Coming, Android Version Naturally First

On the heels of CES and a smothering of tablet announcements and demonstrations, Opera has just announced a tablet version of their web browser, simply named Opera for Tablets. The quick promotional video doesn’t show much: it’s Opera, it loads web pages, and it does it fast. But Opera promises there is more to be seen and we expect those crumbs of details will be laid out on the ground right around the time the big name tablets are announced sometime this week – we’ve already been promised a look at the preview build on the CES show floor. Take a peek at the video below.

    Sounds good!

    The hand at the end, “tada!” Have to give this a try on my Tab, been using Dolphin HD and liking it but Opera looks smooth.

    Opera needs pinch to zoom working at least as well as other offering IMO. It loads things fast, for certain, but the experience just isn’t there.

    i wish they would spend some time getting their existing browsers working properly, before starting on a new browser.
    and, what’s wrong with using opera mobile on a tablet?

  • Simon

    That looked like Opera Mini running on a tablet to me.

    I love Opera on PCs, it’s my primary browser; and I used Mini as my browser on my last phone (K800, so it really needed the boost). But I can’t get on board with Opera Mini or Mobile for Android. They just seem clunky, chunky and non-customisable. I like tweaking!
