Opera has released the improved Opera Mini 5.1 for Windows Mobile which brings better support for high resolution handsets, accelerometer support and the ability to set Opera Mini as the default browser.
Opera Mini 5.1 has already been released for Java, Android and BlackBerry phones and is also available for Windows Mobile 2003 SE, 5.x and 6.x handsets. The release further says Opera Mini’s server backbone speeds up browsing while reducing the data transferred to the phone which allows users roaming on expensive networks, or with pay-as-you-go data plans, Opera Mini can cut your mobile data bill by up to 90 percent.

- The ability to set Opera Mini as the default browser

- Improved page layout and font rendering

And, now that you can set Opera Mini as your default browser on a Windows Mobile phone, it is much easier to enjoy the speed boost and data compression. It is our way of making your Windows Mobile phone better.”
