Opera Mini Submitted to Apple App Store

Opera Mini for iPhone was officially submitted to the Apple iPhone App store today. The browser was first previewed at Mobile World Congress 2010 in February. Apple has given no indication as to whether they will approve the application. It seems likely that they will reject the browser on the basis of "duplicate functionality"; however, the company is under increasing pressure and investigation for anti-competitive practices.

Early reviews of Opera Mini for iPhone praised the sheer browsing speed, powering through Web pages up to six times faster than Safari. Due to server-side rendering, Opera Mini compresses data by up to 90 percent before sending it to the phone, resulting in rapid page loading and more Web per MB for the end user. Those familiar with iPhone roaming charges will relish Opera Mini’s ability to deliver more for less, giving users the Web they want quickly, without, the high costs.

“The Opera Mini for iPhone sneak peek during MWC told us that we have something special,” said Jon von Tetzchner, Co-founder, Opera Software. “Opera has put every effort into creating a customized, stylized, feature-rich and highly responsive browser that masterfully combines iPhone capabilities with Opera’s renowned Web experience, and the result is a high performing browser for the iPhone.”

Man that browser screams compared to Safari. I can see why apple would reject it but I can also understand why they are taking so long to do it. I"m pretty sure if it gets rejected, the FCC will get in the mill and ask why it was rejected and all that stuff. Just add it to cydia and we wouldn't have this issue.
