Opera Mini for iPhone: Download still not on Apple’s App Store

Will there be a new web-browser for the iPhone on the App Store? Or will iPhone users have to make do with Safari?

It has now been six days since Opera Mini was submitted to Apple for approval. It seems Apple are dragging their heels in allowing competition to their own browser Safari for the iPhone. Early reviews of Opera have mentioned the fast page loading speed, a reported six times faster than Safari.

There may be a chance Apple will accept Opera to the App Store, but as the days go on it is looking more unlikely. The browser offers features which are not on Safari, like a find-in-page feature, a function that allows users to search terms within the text displayed on a page. Another useful option is a Speed Dial feature which allows users to see up to nine favorite websites bookmarked visually. A few of these options can be found in Safari but only on the desktop version.

The browser developers (Softpedia) will probably get an email explaining any rejection from Apple, but still hope Opera will be approved eventually, and as the days tick by it is looking more unlikely.
