By Jamie Pert - Jul 8, 2010

Opera have today released a new version of their popular mobile web browser Opera Mini, this update now brings the software to version 5.1 and will now support more than 3000 devices.

The best news of this update is that it will now support Java phones, therefore if you have a slow and clunky small screen handset, you can can probably experience the joys of Opera Mini.

The new version brings a new skin to the software, which should nullify any memory-related problems, one common issue saw handset display an error message reading “out of memory”.

Opera seem very happy with their new skin, not only does it bring advantages to low-end handsets but it the interface also allows you see more web content and make web browsing snappier.

Opera suggest that if you are running a Nokia Series 40 phone or a handset with less than 200 pixels (in either direction) you should definitely download this update, however if you are running Opera Mini on a high-end smartphone the update is not as crucial.
