Slashdot is one of many to pick up this story. I hope they are successful, even though I am not an Opera user, let alone a fan. Gruber, of course, is quick to remind us that there are other browsers for the iPhone already. These are little better than mash ups of the jigsaw pieces the SDK provides. Opera Mini, if successful, could open the door for far more interesting alternatives.
Personally, I have wanted nothing more than Fennec, Mozilla’s mobile browser, on my iPod Touch. Unfortunately, I believe Mozilla has decided to avoid the iPhone, now, on principle. Maybe, just maybe, they’d reconsider if Apple did approve an Opera submission.
