    Tried it, but its slower than dirt loading on my 7100t. Then it doesnt work anyway

    Takes aprox 2 minutes to load, then the only option you have when clicking the wheel is "close". Kinda sad since the main screen looks interesting, but thats all you get.

    i still haven't had a chance to test it! I'll also try the low-mem version. maybe that will make a difference in speed.

    Re: Opera Mini on Blackberry

    I played around with it last month during their "unofficial" worldwide release.

    A great idea, and probably some solid technology, but the BB is just too slow to run it effectively. For those who don't know, it's a stripped-down version of the Opera browser that is designed to run on low-end and mid-end phones. It uses an Opera proxy server to compress and simplify HTML pages before they get to the phone, so it should save you on bandwidth costs (Opera says up to 80%).

    I have no idea how Opera thinks they can make money with this. At this point, I think they're just waiting to get bought by Google.

    Hopefully they'll find a way to better optimize the program for the BB -- I can't imagine that the BB processor is really *that* slow, so I assume it must be a problem with the Java Runtime.

    I couldn't even get it to download. Guess it would've been a waste of time from these reviews.

    Yea it's very slow on my 7100i. I downloaded it Yesterday about 12:00pm it froze my BB 3 times, then i d/l the smaller version, and it took for ever to load, choose an option, etc, i gave it a day to try it out, and i deleted it about 20mins ago.
