Opera Mobile 10 preview launched for Maemo

Opera has announced that they are now offering a preview edition of their Opera Mobile 10 web browser for the Maemo platform.

This makes it compatible with several devices including: Nokia N900 and N800/N810.

Incidentally, Nokia N770 was launched bundled with a version of the Opera Mobile web browser.

The company switched to their own mobile browser 2 years ago. The latest release marks the comeback of Opera for this mobile platform.

Opera warns about the version released for Maemo:

This Maemo version of Opera Mobile 10 was created as a hobby project by a small team of developers in their spare time. In total, about 6 man-weeks were spent on creating the release. It’s worth pointing out that this is not an officially-supported release. As such, it has not undergone our usual quality assurance processes, and at times may not feel as polished or complete as an official release. This also means that there may never be a “final” release of Opera Mobile 10 for Maemo devices, since it’s just that much more fun to add shiny new features rather than fixing boring old bugs.
