    Thumbs up Verizon Opera Mini

    As I recall, not many thought this would happen (including me), but amazingly enough it looks like the BREW version of Verizon Opera Mini (version 5) has just recently been made available--for free--in VZW's Media Center.

    So far it seems like it might just only be there for the LG enV2 (LG VX9100) and LG enV3 (LG VX9200), but the fact that it's there at all for feature phones is already something. Let's hope it makes it to more phones and keeps on being supported and updated.

    This, in addition to a few other free BREW applications that VZW offers for a lot of the feature phones--like Bing, Social Beat, as well as V CAST Song ID and Backup Assistant--just further expands what's available for free to those with feature phones (both newer and even older).

    Good find CDM. That's awesome news, I hope they make it available for the Samsung Reality.

    Wow. That is a good find. Can't believe it's compatible with my old enV2.

    Good to see you back, C DM!

Somewhere in the menu system on your phone there is an option called Get New Applications from where you should be able to find and download Opera Mini - free of charge (cost for data traffic may apply.)

    Having Opera Mini available on a Verizon Wireless BREW phone is a first for us at Opera, so please do take it for a spin and let us know what you think!

    Support for other Verizon Wireless BREW models are pending - we'll let you know as soon as there is more good news.

    I installed Opera Mini on my wife's LG Env3 yesterday and it seems to work really well although I haven't had much time to really play around with it. I like it better than the Verizon browser pre-installed on the phone. I really hope they make it available for the Samsung Reality.

    Looks like there's finally some official information about Verizon Opera Mini from VZW/Opera--and it should already be available for some more feature phones (with some more being added in the future it seems):

    Wow, finally. I wonder why they took such a long time to officially announce this. I've been checking the Media Center occasionally on my Samsung Reality to see if it's available but nothing yet. From the official release you posted it seems like it should be coming though. Thanks for the update.
