Opera Mini 2.0

September 30th, 2006

Opera Mini is an impressive little web browser for your phone. It allows you to access the web via a remote server that pre-process web pages before sending them to your phone. The content is optimized for your device, providing good performance and a suprisingly great experience. I loaded it on my RAZR and have been pleasantly surprised by how well it works and how well it displays the pages. Definitely something to check out.

You can download Opera Mini using your phone’s browser and going to http://mini.opera.com/

Google Mobile Homepage

I was happy to find that Google allows you to customize your personal Google homepage so that you can view it on your phone. From your PC’s browser, go to http://www.google.com/ig/cp and you will see your homepage layout. Select what you want to be available on your phone (not all options are available). After you are done, simply go to google.com/ig on your cell phone’s browser to see your mobile homepage. Now I can keep up with new recipes at Tech-Rx plus the blogs as well as weather, sports, stocks, etc., all on one page. It works great on my RAZR and hopefully it will help me with my computer withdrawal when I am out and about.
