Opera has announced Opera Mini 3.0 which includes:
- Feed Reader: Iâ€™ve let this replace the native feed reader I have on my phone. The UI is better than what the Sony Ericsson M600i offers, and it actually supports a multitude of formats, including Atom 1.0
- Photo upload. My phone has no camera, but here it is, direct photo upload from within Opera Mini.
- Support for secure connections: You can finally use secure services and stay safe all the way.
- Since most web authors have no regard for mobile usability (and no, dotmobi wonâ€™t help), Opera Mini 3.0 has content folding, where long navigation lists and other filler fluff is collapsed so you donâ€™t have to scroll past 323 pages to get to your actual content.
If you want to check it out without trying it on your phone, pop over to the simulator.
There is also footage of the Aida mobile desktop, which is an R&D project tested by Opera, Telenor and FAST.
