Operamini v5.1 Now Avaialable for the Torch 9800

I know there is quite a few of Operamini fans out there and it looks like Opera has now made  their browser available for BlackBerry 9800. Before it gave you the option to download an older version. Today it gave me the option to download v5.1 and it works pretty good on the Torch but

It doesn’t look like it responds to the touchscreen that well but works using the Trackpad.

The reason I like operamini is because it load pages in full and usually faster than the BlackBerry webkit browser. I do find myself using the webkit browser 90 percent of the time but is always good to have options.

You can download v5.1 by going to

  1. I loved Opera on the BlackBerry’s 8900, 9550, and 9700 and now for the 9800 great, but now discovering the lack of touch input at all versus what is written here “it doesn’t look like it responds to the touchscreen that well” with no swiping for scrolling, this is an app that needs to be looked at again. Disappointing Opera, why bother for a touch enabled device at all. RIM’s webkit browser will continue to work best for me. Opera was one app that won’t be seeing life on my Torch!

  2. Hi everyone !
    Have been on Opera site looking for the V5.1, seems that the Torch 9800 is not supported yet by this browser, maybe this could explain the fact that touchscreen is not responding so well. Have always been using Opera on Desktop, and on all my past blackberrys. Think i will wait for a new version. Thanks.


  3. I found that the best version of Opera Mini 5.1 for the BlackBerry Torch is the version for the Storm, you can download it here:
