Helio Ocean Opera Mini

Helio today revealed that the Ocean would be the first cellphone to have free access to Opera Mini. The update gives the dual-mode slider phone browsing that more closely resembles desktops rather than the basic WAP browsing it had used before; as with Apple's mobile Safari, users can see a zoomed-out version of the full, accurately rendered page and then zoom in to focus on specific articles. Opera's unique remote caching approach also helps make the most of the Ocean's 3G connection by cutting down on load times.

The version of Opera Mini is customized just for the Ocean and includes quick access to searches through Google, Wikipedia, and other common search sites. Helio says the free download should be available immediately but does not say whether the updated web browser will be available on other devices, such as the Mysto.
