    Opera Mini is a Browser ,
    Viigo is a RSS reader
    They are both good at what they do, viigo is a bit memory hungry

    Correct My friend, Viigo is cool as hell, but Opera Mini, is a cool browser, as well.

    They are two totally different programs, and they are both top quality and "must haves". Just download and install them both and enjoy!

    I would say if you have OS 4.5 running on your BB then you don't need Opera Mini. But what Opera Mini has that the BB Browser from 4.5 is missing is downloading straight from the browser. That could come in handy down the line somewhere. Viigo is one awesome app, but 4.5 browser is good enough, you don't need Opera Mini. I mean they are almost the same, just a little feature off. It's not a big deal at all.

    I say download them both. I have done extensive reviews of all the RSS readers available for the BlackBerry and in my opinion Viigo is top notch. With the pending release of Tango they have positioned themselves to take RSS reading on your BlackBerry to a whole new level.

    As for Opera Mini, I second the comments made by HeavyComponent.

    There is a new Beta of Viigo out that you can get at http://getviigo.com/beta on your BB Browser. Or just load the latest version at Viigo.com.

    I kind of suggest the later version rather than the Beta, if you're not one to accept little glitches and such.
